Community Attitudes to a Curfew

Community perceptions generally do not support a curfew being introduced at Brisbane Airport.

Independent research of 1,400 local residents indicates that a substantial majority (71 per cent) of residents do not support the introduction of a curfew at Brisbane Airport.

Additionally, noise complaints are declining. In July 2012, 917 complaints were received from 64 people, compared to June 2013, when 99 complaints were received from 27 people. In the same month, Brisbane Airport recorded almost 18,000 aircraft movements.
