Delta Air Lines to use quieter planes at LaGuardia Airport after community complaints

Published on : Tuesday, March 7, 2017

DeltaDelta Airlines will no longer fly its loudest planes at LaGuardia Airport in response to repeated complaints from Queens residents.

 

According to the media reports, the noisy, existing planes were the MD-88 aircraft, and Delta has replaced them with quieter, more fuel-efficient Airbus A320s, Boeing 737s and several MD-90 mainline aircraft.

 

All of the new planes put into service at LaGuardia Airport started their routes Thursday.

 

Henry Kuykendall, Delta’s vice president for New York, said that, they are committed to providing their customers an exceptional flying experience when travelling through New York airports while also considering their responsibility to the communities where they live and serve.

 

The old planes used at LaGuardia caused some residents in the Queens borough of New York City to deal with noise so loud that it shook their homes on a near constant basis since the Federal Aviation Administration changed flight paths four years ago.

 

Henry also added that, Delta flights on quieter, more efficient and larger aircraft are good for the community and will also support NextGen initiatives around more fuel-efficient GPS routes in New York airspace, the most congested in the world.
