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.

Community News

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

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.

Corporate Responsibility Report

Edinburgh Airport has a Corporate Responsibility and Environment Policy and every year we publish a Corporate Social Responsibility report to provide information and data on our economic, environmental, social and community performance. You can read our latest Corporate Responsibility Report here.

Community board

The Edinburgh Airport Community Board meets quarterly to review funding applications from our local community. The Community Board consists of key representatives from Edinburgh Airport and the local community and they provide independent evaluations of applications.

Charities or community groups associated with members of the Community Board can still apply for funding, but the Community Board member must declare their involvement and withdraw from discussions and the decision-making process.
