When the new runway is fully operational, suburbs like Brighton, Deagon, Nudgee Beach, Zillmere, Aspley, Chermside, Chermside West, Stafford Heights, Stafford, Enoggera, Alderley, and Keperra may already breathe a sigh of relief as departure flights are moved further west.

The new runway will allow aircraft to land over the city and depart over the bay on both runways when northerly winds prevail or arrive over moreton bay and depart over the city on both runways when southerly winds blow at the airport.

The Flight Path tool helps residents check and understand related flight information specific to an address. The flight path for arrivals and departure will depend on the direction of the wind that is prevailing at the airport.

The flight path tool also shows aircraft arrival and departure flight paths for both current and when the new runway opens, along with noise mapping, indicating areas that will experience aircraft noise of  70 decibels or more.

Suburbs under the flight path are not expected to experience noticeable aircraft noise as flights will be at an altitude of about 10,000 to 20,000 feet. Also, as much as possible, flights will directed over the bay between 10pm to 6am.
