Edinburgh Airport Consultative Committee (EACC)

The Edinburgh Airport Consultative Committee (EACC) advises the airport’s Chief Executive on key issues both on campus and in the wider community.

Our group is representative of a wide range of interests, including up to 25 appointed members from local authorities, civil aviation bodies, passenger groups, businesses and community groups.

The group is of huge value to the airport, providing fundamental advice and suggestions which help shape the business decisions which define our airport.

Edinburgh Airport Noise Review Panel

The EACC is helping to oversee a full-scale review of the Edinburgh Airport Noise Advisory Board (EANAB) and has established the Review Panel (EANRP) to carry this out. The review follows three years of EANAB activities and comes as the airport and airlines emerge from the Covid crisis and as ICCAN publishes its latest guidelines for airport engagement with communities.
