Why aren't the noisiest planes banned at Albury Airport?
Australia has one of the most modern, quietest fleet of aircraft in the world. The overwhelming majority of aircraft operating in Australia already meet or exceed the latest noise standards set by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). A few older aircraft have been ‘hush kitted’ to ensure that they meet the minimum standard required to operate in Australia.
Like all airports, Albury Airport have in place rules in order to try limit the noise impacts on local residents. Whilst Albury City Council own and operate the Albury Airport infrastructure, Air Services Australia manage the airspace.
