Enjoy the silence

Reduced aircraft noise is a high priority in Airbus’ eco-efficient design processes.

Airbus cabins are the quietest cabins in the sky, which greatly contributes to passengers being rested on reaching their destination. 

Building on this experience, the A380 cabin beats even Airbus' own standard, this comfort feature being highlighted by the reaction of passengers having flown on the aircraft today. Passengers' overall perception is one of peace and quiet, a major factor toward stress-free long flights. No matter where they sit, all passengers benefit from the quiet A380 cabin with on average half the sound energy of other aircraft. Passengers' feedback confirms the extraordinary contribution to their general well-being due to the absence of background noise on the A380.

In market research surveys the A320 is regularly rated higher than its rivals for the low level of noise in its cabin. Effective insulation in the cabin is one reason why passengers say they find the A320 a quiet aircraft in which to fly. The A320 cabin is the subject of continuous improvements and in its latest version, the noise has been reduced by a further 1dB.
