12/06/02 New Noise Surcharge at Helsinki-Vantaa Airport
A noise surcharge for night time departures (2300 - 0600 LMT) with turbojet aircraft will be applied, starting January 1st 2003. The charge is calculated according to the aircraft's certificated noise level (in accordance with ICAO Annex 16 Vol I part II chapter 3 or FAR Part 36 stage 3). Aircraft which are unable to show a noise certificate according to the above mentioned document will be charged at the highest noise rate of the same aircraft type.
Charges less than 6.60 EUR will not be billed. Charge for one takeoff is:
Charge = Cd * 10 ^ [(Ld-Td)/10]
Unit rate, Cd = 6.60 EUR
Ld = mean of the sideline and take-off noise levels of the aircraft
Minimum threshold at departure, Td = 86 EPNdB.
