Don't Curfew BNE

Brisbane Airport is the third largest airport in Australia on passenger numbers and operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

In early August 2013, the Commonwealth Government released a discussion paper as part of a formal review into whether a curfew at Brisbane Airport is the best way to manage night-time aircraft noise.

The discussion paper looks at the current and future operations of Brisbane Airport, and the associated noise impacts and mitigation strategies.

The Review Committee is calling for public submissions by 31 October 2013.

BAC strongly opposes a curfew at Brisbane Airport as it would cause wide-ranging economic impacts for Brisbane, Queensland and Australia, and would not fix the majority of night-time noise issues.

A curfew is not the right solution for Brisbane.

This website contains information on:

  • The potential impacts of a night-time curfew at Brisbane Airport on many sectors of the Brisbane, Queensland and Australian economy.
  • What is currently being done to manage aircraft noise.
  • Community attitudes to a curfew.
