Civilian shared use permit Eindhoven Airport 2023


Eindhoven Airport received the 2023 civilian shared use permit december 23. The permit runs from January 1, 2023 to December 31, 2023. According to this permit, a maximum of 41,500 aircraft movements per year are allowed for 2023. In line with the advice of Pieter van Geel, former chairman of Proefcasus Eindhoven Airport, another step is taken in reducing noise pollution. The licensed noise load will be reduced by a further step to 9.15 square kilometers. The calculation of this licensed noise area takes into account the expected fleet renewal in 2023 (18 percent of large commercial air traffic). The 2024 permit will take into account the expected fleet renewal for that year.

Also in 2023, the maximum number of scheduled takeoffs on Sunday mornings between 7 a.m. and 8 a.m. will remain limited. To minimize disturbance to local residents in the late evening hours, scheduled landings after 11 p.m. are no longer allowed as early as October 25, 2020. Planned takeoffs were already not allowed.

The new permit implements Pieter van Geel's advice on the development of Eindhoven Airport until 2030. The advice is based on a new noise control model in which the reduction of noise pollution - and no longer the number of flight movements - is guiding the further development of Eindhoven Airport.
