“Airport’s growth causing more nuisance, despite quieter aircraft”

The nuisance at Eindhoven Airport will continue to increase if the airport expands to 73,000 annual flights, the Eindhovens Dagblad (Eindhoven Daily Newspaper, ED) reports.

That while aircraft are becoming quieter and more environmentally friendly. However, the number of flights would ensure that the harmful emissions and noise pollution would only increase. The fact that aircraft are generally becoming quieter and cleaner does not change that.

The airport would like to continue expanding but is currently at the maximum allowed growth. Next year it must be decided if and how Eindhoven Airport may develop in the future. Surveys have been conducted to get a picture of the consequences of the growth. These include the noise pollution and harmful emissions. Should the airport be allowed to continue to increase to 73,000 flights, the nuisance may continue to rise as well. This is according to research on the quality of life, environment, and sustainability, conducted by Eindhoven Airport itself.

The growth to 73,000 annual flights is one of the four scenarios. These include numbers of 43,000 to 100,000 flights a year. Joost Meijs, Director of Eindhoven Airport, sees scope for doubling the number of flights. That would mean 73,000 annual flights would take place.
