Noise measurement

Three noise measurement stations have been operated in the vicinity of Linz Airport since the end of 2003, recording current noise levels at all times. 

Linz Airport purchased both of the permanent stations in addition to the mobile measuring unit. The results are assessed by the State of Upper Austria, Department of Environmental and Systems Engineering, and documented in regular reports.

You can view the current measurement results for each station at any time on the State of Upper Austria's website.


In the environmental booklet, the Austrian airline companies set out the measures they take to protect the environment and the climate, underlining the Austrian aviation sector's strong commitment to sustainable aviation development. All the companies' activities in environmentally relevant areas of aviation are discussed and future developments are also outlined.


Residents with queries about current flight operations are of course welcome to contact Linz Airport or the Vogler Air Base (military flight operations) directly.
