At Bournemouth Airport we take our environmental responsibilities very seriously and we are committed to being a good neighbour.
Climate change is important to us all and in 2007 we published our Master Plan for the future development of the Airport. Central to our plans is a commitment to reduce our impact on the environment and, as part of wide-ranging programme of measures, we have made a commitment to making our operations 'carbon neutral' by 2015. This means that those emissions that arise from airport buildings or vehicles will be eliminated or, where this is not possible, their effect will be off-set.
We believe it is important that we communicate honestly and clearly the environmental impacts that result from our operations and that is why we are one of the first airports in Europe to implement the WebTrak radar replay system. By using WebTrak it is possible to view all aircraft movements in the vicinity of Bournemouth Airport , to see which aircraft flew where and at what height. Whilst at Bournemouth Airport we seek to minimise the impact of noise from all aspects of the operation of aircraft and the airport, we take complaints of noise very seriously.
We have made significant progress in recent years, we know that we need to continue to improve and we are determined to do so.
