A review of surveys of aircraft noise annoyance conducted between 2001 and 2014 in communities around 15 airports in Europe and Asia reached two major conclusions:

  • Dose/response curves showing the percentage of people highly annoyed by aircraft noise have shifted over time, leading to a higher percentage of annoyed people at a given noise level compared to older surveys; and

  • This increase in the percentage of people highly annoyed by aircraft noise is greater at so-called "high-rate change" airports - those facing a sharp change in noise exposure due to activities, such as opening of new runways, operational changes, etc. - than at low-rate change airports.
