Aircraft noise and your health
Aircraft noise can no longer be considered simply as an inconvenience to people’s lives.
Major studies have concluded that aircraft noise is negatively affecting people’s health and quality of life.
Exposure to aircraft noise can lead to short-term responses such as sleep disturbance, annoyance, and impairment of learning in children. Long-term exposure is associated with increased risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, heart attack, stroke, dementia, and may contribute to long-term mental health issues
