Community and environment
Our community matters to Edinburgh Airport. We have a strong commitment to the communities around our airport and aim to address any issues of local concern.
We publish a quarterly newsletter detailing our latest news, route announcements and environmental focus. We also deliver this newsletter to 16,500 homes and businesses in our local area. Download our latest community newsletter
Every year we publish a Corporate Social Responsibility report to communicate our performance. Our latest report, highlighting our 2011 performance, is available to view online.
Freephone noise line
In response to local requests, the airport established a freephone 24 hour telephone line for residents to raise concerns about noise. If you have concerns regarding noise, please call our noise line on 0800 731 3397 (freephone 24/7).
Noise insulation scheme
This was followed with the introduction of noise fining, whereby aircraft that break stated noise thresholds are fined depending on the level of infringement. In 2009 we launched a consultation on a Noise Insulation Scheme for those properties most affected by noise and we started insulating homes in 2010.
