Economic Impact

As set out in Directive 2000/30, the EU requires adoption of the “balanced approach” to noise restrictions.  Before new restrictions are implemented, there needs to be an assessment of the effect of the restrictions being considered.  MPD is exceptionally well-placed to assist airport operators or other authorities to meet this obligation.

Experience of Economic Impact
MPD has considerable experience in this field.  Some recent projects include:-

Heathrow Airport London

MPD provided the underlying economic analysis of the contribution of Heathrow night flights to the UK economy (and the potential economic disbenefits of a ban on such flights) to an Oxford Economics report commissioned by BAA Plc together with British Airways.

European Commission

MPD, in association with CE Delft and ERM, prepared a report for the European Commission setting out a methodology by which the impact of restrictions on night flights could be assessed.

BAA plc

MPD prepared a report for BAA plc assessing the economic impact of night flight restrictions then proposed for the London airports.

European Commission

MPD, in association with CE Delft and ERM, performed a study for the European Commission assessing the exposure to aircraft noise across Europe under various scenarios.
