A sudden loud noise scares people, and this affects the pressure and provokes the development of dangerous diseases, "- says study author Anna Hensell.

"We intend to take drastic measures to combat noise airplanes and we hope to be reduced by introducing the use of quieter aircraft. We also offer nearby residents to install double glazed windows ", - concluded the representative Heathrow Matt Gorman.
