Noise Action Plan for Brisbane

The Noise Action Plan for Brisbane is Airservices Australia’s plan to reduce the impact of aircraft noise on the communities of the wider Brisbane area. The plan was developed to address impacts resulting from changes to Brisbane’s airspace, following the introduction of Brisbane Airport's new parallel runway in July 2020.

The Noise Action Plan for Brisbane comprises four packages of work detailing 11 recommendations and 82 individual actions.

Airservices is actively engaging with industry stakeholders and the wider Brisbane community on aircraft noise, discussing potential flight path options and outlining key delivery milestones over three years (2023-2025).

Community wellbeing support

Airservices Australia has extended our Employee Assistance Program to any community member who is feeling negatively affected by aircraft operations. This assistance program is a confidential service, provided at no cost to community members. The assistance program is provided by Converge International and is completely independent of Airservices Australia. Learn more here.
