Public urges noise reduction at Ljubljana Airport

NEWS FLASH


The mayors of the municipalities of Kranj, Šenčur, Škofja Loka, Vodice, Cerklje and Mengeš have urged the Slovenian Civil Aviation Agency to work on reducing noise pollution caused by aircraft taking off and landing at Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport. They have requested for jets to be assigned alternative flight paths in order to avoid flying at low altitude over these urban areas, which are in close proximity to the airport. According to the municipalities, noise disturbs the ability of their residents to concentrate, causes restlessness and discomfort, and endangers health. The mayors of the respective municipalities said they have received a significant number of complaints from residents. Through monitoring, some of the urban settlements have registered noise levels exceeded permissible levels. The mayors have requested for flight paths established in 2013 to be amended, and for take offs and landings to avoid densely populated areas. "The joint call made by the mayors is the first step to improving the situation," the Mayor of Šenčur, Ciril Kozjek, said.

Airport operator Fraport Slovenija noted that flight path regulation is squarely the responsibility of the Civil Aviation Agency. "From December 2008 until the end of March 2019, we have performed continuous noise monitoring in the most noise exposed areas. In 2019 we will continue with annual (occasional) noise measurements in the summer season and thus continue to monitor the noise levels during the day, evening and nighttime during the busiest period of the year. Every year we produce noise maps for areas around the airport", the operator said.

  1. Noise pollution is quite important and must be strictly monitored.
    In previous forum sessions, people from BEG for instance have alarmed on the increasing noise levels within the airport vicinity, so LJU should do the same.

    1. Symbiosis. If they can design a safe departing/arrival procedures that will reduce noise pollution then they should implement it.

    2. Why should they please those who willingly moved close to the airport? They knew the airport was there, they knew planes are noisy so they should suck it up and deal with it. If they don't want to them they are more than willing to move.

  4. So Sencur benefits from the huge sum they get from airport for allowing the flights. But they want to create objections even for the flights that do not directly fly over them, rather take a turn before arriving Sencur. Funny people.

  5. Zanimljivo je da se žale opčine koje se nalaze na sasvim suprotnim stranama aerodroma.
    Moja tetka živi u Mengešu. Sjećam se dana kad su sletali JATovi B727. E to je stvarno bila buka. Ovo dan danas je kamilica. Ali dobro. Treba skupiti par političkih poena, pa padne još koji eur u blagajnu općine gdje ima više krava nego ljudi.
    Ne brinite ni ništa. Čekajte do zime da Adria ode do vraga, pa više neće biti buke nikakve.

  7. Problem je procedura Gimix1J, jer zahteva veliki gradient, trajektorija je točno iznad Kranja, a da bi se držao gradient, skoro uvek mora se poletati sa maksimalnim gasom.

  8. Istina je da su sada mnogo češča poletanja u smer 30 (31) dok se pre forsiralo poletanje u smer 12 (13) a sam grad kranj mnogo je veči i malo bliži aerodromu nego recimo Mengeš.
