Welcome sign at Brisbane Airport

Airservices Australia has released its final report in the ‘Brisbane New Parallel Runway Flight Paths Post Implementation Review (PIR)’ which recommends improvements  to limit and reduce the impacts of aircraft noise.

The report – led by the technical advisor, Trax International – includes a series of recommendations focused on:

  • Enhancing governance and communication around airspace changes
  • Further maximising the number of flights over water
  • Reducing the frequency and concentration of flights over communities 
  • Optimising the wider Brisbane airspace system to improve aircraft noise outcomes for communities

The Brisbane Airport Post Implementation Review Advisory Forum – an independent, community-orientated advisory group – has strongly backed the adoption of all of the recommendations, where they are determined to be safe, viable and will provide positive noise mitigation outcomes for the community.

Brisbane Airport Corporation CEO, Gert-Jan de Graaff, said Brisbane Airport is committed to creating a sustainable, world-leading airport city that supports the community. 

“Brisbane Airport wants to minimise the impact on our neighbouring communities. We welcome this independent report and look forward to working with all partners including airlines to reduce noise for residents,” Mr de Graaff said.

Airservices, which is leading the PIR, will release its response to the report at the end of this month – ahead of community workshops to be held in September, with the final PIR expected to be finalised in November.

Federal Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government Minister, Catherine King, said Airservices will continue to engage with industry and locals on this critical piece of work as they seek opportunities to improve noise outcomes for the Brisbane community.

“As promised, the Government will proceed with its election commitment to establish a permanent, independent community consultation body to provide ongoing support to better manage aircraft noise around Brisbane Airport,” Ms King said.

“I look forward to seeing the outcomes of the upcoming community consultations and final PIR.”
