Ballina Byron Gateway Airport is very conscious of the potential for noise impacts on the community, particularly for residents immediately surrounding the airport or underneath the existing flight paths. Whilst it is recognised by all parties that the airport was in place prior to most residents moving into the area, Ballina Byron Gateway Airport has attempted to address the community concerns and has developed a Fly Neighbourly Policy for the airport.
It is important to note that the Ballina Byron Gateway Airport operates 24 hours a day, 365 days of every year. However, there are very few aircraft that operate after last light.
It should also be noted that we do not encourage any ‘back of the clock’ or late night RPT and charter operations into the airport.
Ballina Byron Gateway Airport encourages anyone with concerns regarding aircraft noise at the airport to be raised directly with airport management on 02 6681 1858.
