Luxair was today congratulated on receiving Manchester Airport's "Skyliners' Award".

The award is earned by the airline that best adheres to anti-noise measures, such as departing within set boundaries to reduce noise to nearby residents.

The performance of the airlines is monitored in a 30 km radius of the runway using specialised high-tech equipment known as MANTIS, and airlines have a 95 per cent accuracy target.

For residents living close to the airport, and for travellers in hotel accommodation, the awards reflect Manchester's commitment to giving people a quiet night's sleep.

This is the second time that Luxair has achieved "Skyliner's" status.
