NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

Arrival Procedures
The Standard Instrument Arrival procedures (STARs) are designed taking into consideration noise abatement and should be strictly followed by the Airport Users.

Delayed gear and flap extension and low power/drag configurations should be used consistent with safe operating procedures.

VFR flights approaching to land should make adjustments for a short final approach, unless otherwise instructed by ATC.

Departure Procedures
Thrust Reduction-Acceleration, runways 03L and 03R. Unless for safety reasons all turbo-prop and jet powered aircraft shall not reduce take-off thrust until a minimum altitude of 1800 feet MSL has been reached and shall not accelerate above initial climb speed (V2+10) or change take-off flap and slat configuration until a minimum altitude of 3300feet MSL has been reached.

Altitude Restrictions
All aircraft departing from or arriving at the Airport should avoid over flying residential areas of Artemis, Rafina, Markopoulo, Koropi and Spata. Aircraft that are unable to comply, shall over fly these areas for the minimum required time while maintaining the minimum safe height.

Aircraft flying within the Athens TMA not intending to land at the Airport should preferably not fly over residential areas below 3000 ft AGL.

Reverse Thrust - to be used minimal and in accordance with safe operating procedures.
