Eindhoven Airport Enhances Communication with Community

THE NETHERLANDS — With a world-first public airport operations tool, the Netherland's second busiest airport is ready to grow while maintaining good community relations.

In order for Eindhoven Airport to grow, Eindhoven Airport made an agreement at the Netherland's "Alderstafel" advisory committee to enhance communication with the local community about airport operations, complaint handling and noise measurements.

As part of this project, Eindhoven Airport and the working group under the "Alderstafel" created a website (http://samenopdehoogte.nl/) featuring Brüel & Kjær's WebTrak and WebTrak MyNeighbourhood tools. These tools provide the community with accurate information about their local airport, answers to frequently asked questions and a better understanding of airport operations.

Joost Meijs, CEO at Eindhoven Airport said: "Brüel & Kjær was selected for its long experience of airport noise management and our successful working relationship so far. Brüel & Kjær's Airport Noise and Operations Monitoring System (ANOMS) and WebTrak represent the latest in available technologies and we are looking forward to using them to work more directly with our stakeholders."

This deployment of WebTrak MyNeighbourhood is the world's first. WebTrak MyNeighbourhood enables the public to investigate noise and flight information, including long-term trends and seasonal changes, for themselves. Drill down capabilities reveal further information about flights and noise - and WebTrak also provides an easy way for people to lodge complaints.

Kent Espersen, Head of European Sales for Brüel & Kjær Environment Management Solutions said: "We are very happy to extend our working relationship with Eindhoven Airport to help them as they move into greater collaboration over environmental, noise and sustainability issues."

Eindhoven Airport has been using Brüel & Kjær noise management solutions for complaint handling and noise reporting for over ten years.
