Budapest Airport launched the second phase of its Noise Protection Program yesterday, reducing noise burdens for people leaving in the vicinity of Ferenc Liszt International Airport.
The For The Neighbors of Budapest Airport Foundation launched the largest ever, extended public noise protection program with the support of the airport operator in September 2022, and the first phase of the program came to an end in February 2023. In the first phase, 20% of property owners on average took advantage of the opportunities offered.
Since the first phase was implemented in areas where the scheme was already available (but with extended services), it is expected that the second, third, and fourth phases will see a much higher rate of application, as this is the first time that these property owners will be able to participate in the program, the airport operator says.
This means that from the second phase onwards, property owners in certain areas of Districts X, XVII, XVIII, Vecsés, and Üllő will be able to benefit from free retrofit window insulation or window replacement, the insulation of roller shutter casings, the installation of a ventilator and window replacement with cost sharing.
Budapest Airport informed the affected homeowners about the details of the program and the application procedure by mail, but more information is also available at zajvedelem.bud.hu.
The scheme is open to all property owners who have a property in the designated area and meet the eligibility criteria.
“Budapest Airport is developing together with the surrounding settlements and districts, and pays special attention to improving the quality of life for nearby residents,” said Chris Dinsdale, CEO of Budapest Airport.
“We are confident that all affected residents will find the best solution for them in our noise protection program. We encourage everyone who owns property in the affected areas to participate in the program, as the For The Neighbors Of Budapest Airport Foundation can ensure with the services offered that noise burdens for residential buildings are minimized and thus, peaceful rest for residents,” he added.
