During the pandemic, the number of flights in and out of Newcastle Airport (and across the globe) has fallen dramatically.  The benefits for the environment and global warming have been significant and the reduction in noise pollution has been huge. BUT, THE NOISE IS BACK!

The aircraft are flying again, the noise has returned and emissions will rise and further accelerate global warming
