Noise protection

Protection measures

Aviation noise can never be completely avoided around an international hub, but we want to exhaust all possibilities to keep it as low as possible.

We continually monitor aircraft noise in the region through stationary and mobile measurements.

Airlines that use quieter modern aircraft are given incentives in the form of significantly lower landing fees.

In buildings in the surrounding region, about 21,000 special windows and 20,000 ventilation systems have been installed under an extensive noise protection program. Since 1992 the airport has invested a total of 62 million euros in noise protection measures.
