In 1972, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) established the first noise emissions standards for aircraft. Since then, aircraft designs have evolved significantly to reduce noise emissions at its source. With every new iteration of the noise emissions standard, aircraft must adopt the latest available noise reduction technology.
At YYC, our passenger airline partners have been updating their fleet with new state-of-the-art aircraft that are more fuel efficient and produce less noise. It is anticipated that older aircraft will be retired and replaced with newer aircraft, which over time, will result in a quieter fleet.
