Brisbane Airport Corporation has prepared the Flight Path & Aircraft Noise Information Booklet to provide the community with useful information on aircraft operations at Brisbane Airport between now and 2035.
The booklet includes:
- Flight path maps and data tables
- N70 noise contours overlaid on the flight paths
It provides readers with a greater level of understanding about the creation of aircraft noise, why aircraft take off and land in certain directions, the operating modes of Brisbane Airport now and in the future, Airservices Australia’s role in managing aircraft traffic and the factors that will influence runway choice when Brisbane's new runway is in use.
⚠️ COVID-19 impact
Information prepared for the Brisbane Airport Flight Path Tool and Flight Path and Aircraft Noise Information Booklet has been prepared based on normal operations at Brisbane Airport. Anticipated future growth figures provided in the Flight Path and Aircraft Noise Information Booklet were prepared pre COVID-19 and do not take this impact on traffic numbers into account.
Brisbane Airport is currently operating significantly below its usual capacity. Capacity and traffic demand does not influence how the runways and flight paths are used, however the number of aircraft using these flight paths is likely to be significantly lower, increasing over time.
