Aircraft Noise


As the owner and operator of Frankfurt Airport (FRA), Fraport AG has always felt committed to contribute to minimize the airport’s noise footprint. The basis was created by continuous measurement of flight noise occurrences since 1964.

Since that time, Fraport AG has continuously expanded and improved its comprehensive measuring and monitoring system. Even before the inauguration of Runway Northwest in 2011 two new measuring stations were installed. At present the aircraft noise measuring system of Frankfurt Airport is made up of 29 stationary measuring points and 3 mobile measuring containers.
