The concentration of air traffic at BER has led to a considerable reduction in aircraft noise for the population in Berlin and Brandenburg. However, residents in the vicinity of BER are also newly affected by aircraft noise. We take these pressures very seriously. Comprehensive information on the new flight paths, flyover heights, and an operating direction forecast has therefore been available to all those affected since 2013. Additional stationary measuring points document the noise situation before and after the opening of BER. By taking mobile measurements along the flight paths, we also ensure that the noise development before and after opening is made transparent at locations further away from the airport. Our neighbours can inform us online about particularly disturbing events so that we can work together with air traffic control and the airlines to counteract unnecessary noise developments. The noise-related charges to be paid by the airlines are to be levied individually for each aircraft in 2021 in order to create a greater incentive for the airlines to take off and land with as little noise as possible. With the noise protection programme, we pursue the goal of finding optimal individual solutions with the citizens in order to minimise noise in the living area.
