Air Quality in the area surrounding the Airport is affected by a wide range of emission sources, the most significant of which is road traffic pollution from local roads and the motorway network. However, Airport operations cause emissions which can also impact local air quality. Our aim is to ensure the Airport does not cause Air Quality emission exceedances in the region, and to work proactively to reduce emissions at the Airport.
