Airservices Australia is inviting the community to have its say on proposed new flightpath options in a third round of Noise Action Plan for Brisbane community engagement sessions being held across Brisbane from Tuesday 7 November.

Residents can register here to attend four online sessions or six drop-in sessions to be held across the city. Community feedback is open until 10 December. See Fact Sheets here for more information.

The sessions will outline Airservices’ third set of proposed flightpath options to reduce the impact of aircraft operations on Brisbane communities, including:

  • options to reduce the concentration of daytime flightpaths west of Brisbane Airport
  • alternative night-time operations across the city to reduce noise impacts over some communities

Airservices has also announced the final decision for the 2022 Noise Improvement Trials here.

Airservices Australia Head of Community Engagement Donna Marshall said any proposed flightpath changes would be subject to extensive community engagement prior to implementation.

“Airservices is fully committed to engaging with as many Brisbane residents as possible at  our online and drop-in community engagement sessions,” Ms Marshall said. “We want the community to openly tell us what they think.

“Airservices wants to ensure this is a transparent process, which demonstrates the organisation’s commitment to improving noise outcomes for the Brisbane community, where safe and operationally feasible.

“We look forward to hearing the community’s feedback on these latest flightpath options for Brisbane.”
