Climate protection

Hardly any other industry has set itself such ambitious climate protection targets as the aviation industry. Airlines, aircraft manufacturers, air traffic control services and airports all over the world agreed on a climate protection strategy as early as 2009, focused on the reduction of carbon dioxide. In the long term, climate-neutral flying should be possible.

Aircraft noise

Aviation is working to reduce the exposure of the population to aircraft noise. Due to quieter engines, innovative aircraft technologies and optimized approach and takeoff procedures, aircraft have become quieter and quieter. The aviation industry is focusing on reducing noise caused by aircraft (active noise abatement) on the one hand and on relieving local residents (passive noise abatement) on the other, by financing, for example, structural noise mitigation.
