Reducing noise

We acknowledge the impact that aircraft noise pollution can have on residents living near an airport, especially at night. We continue to modernize our air fleet with the goal of meeting the stringent noise pollution standards of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). In the reporting year, we increased the number of jet aircraft compliant with the strictest noise standard (ICAO Chapter 4) by 10%. We were also able to reduce the number of older aircraft (those requiring noise reducing “hush kits” or that do not otherwise meet ICAO Chapter 3). We do our best to minimize noise and work closely with stakeholders to find ways of operating that generate less noise. Our investments in electric vehicles also help us reduce noise in urban areas.
