Complain about airport curfews

Airport curfews help reduce noise from late night flights and are legally enforceable. Failure to comply is a criminal offence that may result in significant fines.

While most aircraft operations are prohibited during this period, there is a provision for the operation of:

  • emergency aircraft
  • some small jets
  • propeller-driven aircraft
  • freight movements.
