NOISE SURCHARGE

7/2010 - According to the IATA Airport and Air Navigation Charges Manual, the Noise Levy Charge shown below has been discontinued at this airport.

1/2007 IATA Airport and Air Navigation Charges Manual

Noise Levy Charge (NLC)

Calculation: Rate x 2^ (ANL-265)/15

Rate: AUD 200.96 (GST exempt)

ANL (assessed noise level), measured in decibels, is calculated as follows:

Jet aircraft certified as Chapter 2: ANL is the sum of the lateral, flyover and approach noise measurements (in decibels) plus 3.5

Jet aircraft certified as Chapter 3: ANL is the sum of the lateral, flyover and approach noise measurements in decibels.
