The Airbus ‘Whisperjet’ is too loud for Zurich residents

Written by on November 6, 2018

Swiss Air greeted the arrival of its latest plane with great fanfare, dubbing the Airbus SE A220 model the “Whisperjet” and promising neighborhoods around Zurich Airport that it would be 50 percent quieter than older aircraft. But that tag has come back to haunt the Deutsche Lufthansa AG unit as the narrow-body’s twin engines emit what locals have described as a strange howling noise as it comes in to land, enraging people living on the flight path.
