Quiet Flyers Land Awards

Fly Quiet Award winnersThe Airport Authority recently announced the winners of its 8th Annual YVR Fly Quiet Awards. Presented annually, these awards are earned by airlines that demonstrated the lowest levels of noise within the community during the year. It’s one way that we can recognize the dedication of our airline partners to reducing their noise footprint within our community.  We work closely with these and other industry partners, including the City of Richmond, to ensure we are the best possible neighbours.  Awards are presented in three aircraft categories. This year’s winners are: 

  • Japan Airlines - Wide Body Jet
  • WestJet Airlines - Narrow Body Jet
  • Jazz Airlines - Propeller Aircraft

Using the Airport Authority’s noise monitoring and flight tracking system, the winners are selected based on the airline with the lowest annual noise level.

The Airport Authority’s aeronautical noise management program works to balance safe and convenient 24-hour air travel with enjoyable urban living. We work closely with the members of the YVR Aeronautical Noise Management Committee, and we value additional input from local residents. Email us at if you are interested in more information about our noise management program or have questions.
