This paper presents the impacts of climate change on aircraft noise at Chios Airport in Greece. Departure noise contours are generated using the IMPACT assessment tool for the A320 and B737-800 aircraft. Since 1974, observed climate data shows that the average minimum temperature has increased by 0.75oC per decade and the average windspeed has decreased by 2.26 knots per decade. Since 1997, the degraded take-off performance has expanded the 60dB Lden noise contour area by up to 4.8%, increasing the population exposure to aircraft noise. Further research about the local climate impact on aircraft noise at busier airports is recommended.
