Oman Air Helping to Cut Heathrow’s Noise Footprint

Oman Air announced that it has contributed to reducing Heathrow Airport’s noise footprint.

Heathrow’s latest Fly Quiet and Green league table, which ranks 50 airlines on seven noise and emission metrics, showed that Oman Air climbed up 15 places due to its near perfect score of 99 percent.

The league table also shows a 30 percent reduction in the number of aircraft departing during sensitive evening hours.

Oman Air’s performance improved significantly after it worked alongside Heathrow’s noise team to make a number of operational changes.

Independent analysis from the Civil Aviation Authority commissioned by Heathrow, showed that 52,000 fewer households are now impacted by noise compared to 2006 levels.
