East Midlands Noise Monitoring and Planned Procedures


With over 100 aircraft movements per day, the airport’s operation has the potential to disturb people. With this in mind, we work hard to reduce the noise impact of our operations, particularly at night.


The airport is committed to:

  • Developing a noise amelioration programme to influence the operation of aircraft, with the aim of minimising noise generation and the over-flying of populated areas.
  • Seek to minimise the impact of noise from all aspects of the operation of aircraft and the airport.


In order to reduce aircraft noise and, where possible, the number of people exposed to aircraft noise, the airport has a number of key work streams.
