Independent review recommends moving flight paths to alleviate noise concerns but disgruntled residents want solutions sooner
Anti-aircraft noise campaigners say they will target investors in Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) as they threaten to ramp up efforts to force a curfew and cap on flights over the city.
Aircraft noise was the defining local issue at the federal election for many who live under flight paths that emerged when the Brisbane airport opened its second runway in mid-2020, playing a role in the election of Greens MPs in three inner-city seats.
A sustained community campaign to address the noise led Air Services Australia to commission an independent review into the problem, whose report and recommendations were made public on Monday.
