Noise Programs

Seattle-Tacoma International Airport offers one of the most comprehensive aircraft noise reduction programs in the nation. The airport's Noise Programs Office works closely with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the airlines and the local communities to monitor existing noise programs and develop new ways of reducing airport and aircraft noise. The office has two primary focuses: sound insulation programs and noise abatement programs.
Sound insulation programs are designed to reduce airport noise that people hear in their homes and in the classroom.
Noise abatement programs focus on reducing the noise produced by aircraft while on the ground, during takeoffs and landings and during flights over populated areas.
