An industry that impacts more than 62.7 million jobs globally, airports are continually adapting to meet business objectives, complex regulatory compliance, and increasing pressure from travelers and local communities.
ESA partners with airport operators to tackle complex issues affecting the development and operation of airports. We have a team of professionals throughout the country who specialize in noise, environmental, and aviation planning services, including Federal Aviation Authority (FAA)-qualified wildlife biologists who are highly experienced in addressing the inherent conflict between wildlife and the airport operational environment.
Having worked with more than 150 airports in more than 30 states across the nation, our team has developed a strong understanding of the myriad challenges and regulations facing airports and their communities. Among our long list of projects, we have prepared the Environmental Impact Statement for the reconfiguration of O’Hare International Airport and comprehensive noise studies for John F. Kennedy and LaGuardia Airports—which continue to be among the largest studies in the history of aviation in the United States.
Given the national momentum toward reducing emissions, combined with shrinking capital budgets due to COVID-19, now is a perfect time for airport sponsors to start planning for how they can incorporate low-emission improvement projects into their day-to-day operations at minimal cost.
