Gov't, Industry Players Meet To Reduce Budapest Airport Noise Pollution
A body of government official and aviation industry insiders met for the first time on Thursday to discuss ways to reduce noise pollution caused by aircraft in the capital.

The body was led by Innovation and Technology Minister László Palkovics, who was joined by the head of the Prime Minister’s Office Gergely Gulyás, Budapest mayor István Tarlós and Róbert Esik, who heads the Hungarian Investment Promotion Agency (HIPA).

Executives of air traffic control company HungaroControl, Liszt Ferenc International operator Budapest Airport and low-cost airline Wizz Air Hungary as well as experts from the Budapest University of Technology and Economics also took part.

Tarlós floated a number of proposals earlier in the year on ways to reduce noise pollution from aircraft in Budapest.
