B777s make Cathay one of the quietest at Heathrow

CATHAY PACIFIC is now one of the most environment-friendly ‘quiet’ airlines operating out of London Heathrow, it is claimed. 
The airport’s Fly Quiet league table, which ranks the top 50 airlines according to their noise performance, shows the Hong Kong airline has jumped from 24th to 12th place as a direct result of the replacement of B747s with B777s on the route.
British Airways (short-haul) is in the number one slot, followed by Virgin Atlantic Little Red, Aer Lingus, Emirates and Qantas Airways at number five.
Matt Gorman, Heathrow’s sustainability director, says: “Our table shows that airlines are committed to reducing the number of people affected by noise and want to work with us to improve their performance.
“The Fly Quiet programme is part of our firm commitment to being transparent about aircraft noise and is already helping us make progress in reducing its impact on local communities,” he adds.
