Noise Action Plan Consultation
We recognise aircraft noise can be an important issue for our local communities. The way in which we manage this is set out in our Noise Action Plan (NAP). The airport is required to publish a Noise Action Plan every five years and the current version is now due to be updated.
We recently completed a 13-week public consultation on our Draft Noise Action Plan 2018-2023 which can be downloaded below.
We are currently reviewing the responses we received during the consultation before we publish a final version of the Noise Action Plan.
Current Noise Action Plan
Glasgow Airport Limited (GLAL) is responsible for the control of noise and vibration caused by engine ground running on the airfield. It is the policy of GLAL to ensure that engine testing is carried out in a manner which will cause the least disturbance to the surrounding community.
To this end, there will be no ground running of aircraft engines at any time within the boundary of Glasgow Airport without the consent of the Airfield Operations Duty Manager (AODM). To minimise disturbance, engine runs will normally only be granted during the following local times; 0500 - 0700 low power and/or short power runs (maximum 5 minutes) & 0700 - 2300 high power, extended runs.
The table below shows the number of ground engine runs carried out during 2017.
