The noise action plan has been produced to comply with the EU and Scottish Government requirement for airports with over 50,000 movements a year to produce a noise action plan. For further details please visit www.scotland.gov.uk.
Aberdeen International Airport has demonstrated a commitment to taking action where it can to minimize the impact of aircraft noise on our local communities. That is why measures and controls have been put in place to limit noise to certain times, to alleviate the burden at every opportunity and to mitigate the noise where possible.

Aberdeen International Airport has a dedicated phone number for members of the public to raise concerns about noise. All callers will be asked to leave their name and contact information, along with details of the date and time of any disturbance. All calls are recorded and complaints investigated.
Noise insulation scheme
Aberdeen International Airport has a noise insulation scheme available to local residents. Households in the 66 dB contour of the airport are entitled to apply for:
- free secondary glazing to fit existing windows; or
- a 50% contribution to standard double glazed PVCu replacement windows; or
- a 50% contribution to high specification double glazed PVCu replacement windows, specially designed to reduce noise levels, or a combination of these options.
Properties already fitted with double glazing and do not want it replaced, can arrange for a free home survey to be carried out to identify whether the home’s current insulation qualities can be improved. Loft insulation has also been found to help further reduce noise disturbance. For this reason, eligible households would also be entitled to ventilation and loft insulation free of charge as part of the scheme. For further information call us on +44 (0)1224 725068.
