Runway rotation plan in place at IGI for noise abatement: Govt

Runway rotation plan has been put in place at the international airport here for noise abatement, the government said today.
It has been implemented by the Airports Authority of India (AAI) to "achieve a balanced distribution of noise exposure for the areas located below the flight paths of aircraft", Minister of State for Civil Aviation Jayant Sinha told the Lok Sabha.
Indira Gandhi International (IGI) airport in the national capital is among the busiest in the country, with around 1,100 flight movements every day.
"As per the Runway Use Plan for Noise Abatement at IGI airport, two runways of the airport are used only for departure from 2301 hours to 0300 hours and from 0301 hours to 0600 hours on rotation basis," Sinha said in a written reply.
According to him, runway capacity of the airport is reduced from 2301 hours to 0600 hours due to non-availability of all runways.
"However, the overall impact is minimal as the traffic demand is comparatively less during this period," he added.
