How are we looking to reduce noise levels?

What we're doing

Gatwick Airport, the Government, airlines, ATC and aircraft and engine manufacturers have all been listening to people who have questions about noise and are continuously working to reduce the noise levels at the airport.

As an industry, the four main things we are doing are:

1. Designing airframes and engines to reduce noise generation.
2. Tightening the regulations on noise.
3. Improving the way planes and airports operate.
4. Providing noise insulation and compensation for people who experience high levels of noise.
