DAYLIGHT SAVINGS NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURE
Brisbane Noise Abatement Procedures (NAPs) prioritise the use of runway 19 operations, where arrivals occur over water and departures occur over land, when conditions prevent the use of modes that direct all movements over water.
The peak departure period for Brisbane Airport is generally between 6 - 8am, with only limited arrivals during this time. With Daylight Saving commencing in other Australian states and territories on 2 October 2022, the morning peak departure period will commence from 5am to enable timely arrival of flights in other cities. To reduce the impact of these early morning departures on communities close to the airport and subject to lower aircraft operations, Airservices is proposing to change the runway priority over this Daylight Saving period to prioritise departures over water, where wind direction allows.
We are currently finalising a safety assessment to amend the Noise Abatement Procedure (NAP) and expect to deliver this change in October 2022. We will provide further information ahead of commencing this new NAP operation.
