NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES

The airport has noise abatement procedures. See AIP Espana on Aena Air Navigation Web Site LEBL AD 2.21 Noise Abatement Procedures for details.

As noted in the AIP, departure and arrival paths are monitored by radar and noise levels recorded for every operation 24 hours a day.


CONTINUOUS DESCENT ARRIVAL (CDA)
Note: regarding Continuous Descent Arrival (CDA) is not applied yet, but it is planned.

AIRPORT CURFEWS - NONE

PREFERENTIAL RUNWAYS
The airport has preferential runways in effect between the house of 0700-2300 and 2300-0700 for environmental reasons. See See AIP Espana on Aena Air Navigation Web Site LEBL AD 2.20 Local Regulatons - Preferential Configurations for details.

OPERATING QUOTA - NONE

ENGINE RUN-UP RESTRICTIONS - NONE

APU OPERATING RESTRICTIONS

At Stands in contact with terminal:
It is obligatory the use of the 400 Hz facilities. The use of the air-conditioning facilities will be obligatory when the aircraft air conditioning is needed. The use of the aircraft APU is forbidden in these stands in the period between 2 minutes after blocks for the arrivals and 5 minutes before off-blocks for departure. The aircraft APU will only be able to be used when the fixed units are not operative and the mobile units are not available.

At Remote Stands:
The use of APU is forbidden except for 10 minutes after blocks for the arrival and 10 minutes before off-blocks for the departure except for wide bodied aircraft that may be allowed to use it 50 minutes before departure and 15 minutes after arrival.

NOISE BUDGET RESTRICTIONS - None

NOISE SURCHARGE
6/2011 IATA Airport, ATC and Fuel Charges Monitor

Surcharges according to the noise level of the aircraft at Alicante, Barcelona, Gran Canaria,
Madrid/Barajas, Málaga, Palma de Mallorca, Tenerife Sur and Valencia airports, for civil
subsonic jet aeroplanes, the resulting quantities of the landing charges and will be increased in the following percentages on the basis of the time period in which the landing or take off takes place and the acoustic classification of each aircraft

Landing Fee - Based on maximum take-off weight
Landing Charge Rate per Tonne  
Within EC & International Flights EUR6.65  
Minimum   EUR 133.00

The acoustic category of an airplane is determined as per the following:
Category 1 cumulative margin relative to Chapter 3 of less than 5 EPNdB
Category 2 cumulative margin relative to Chapter 3 of between 5-10 EPNdB
Category 3 cumulative margin relative to Chapter 3 of between 10-15 EPNdB
Category 4 cumulative margin relative to Chapter 3 of over 15 EPNdB

Sound Insulation (Residences and Public Buildings)
2006-2017

The Sound Insulation Program has 2 phases:

1. Phase 1. May 2006 – September 2008. In this phase 32 housings were insulated.

2. Phase 2. July 2009 – January
2011. During the year 2010, 12
housings were insulated.

NOISE MONITORING SYSTEM
Noise monitors, departure and arrival paths are monitored by radar and noise levels recorded for every operation 24 hours a day.

Since July 2010, Barcelona airport has a new public tool (WebTrak) in order to
follow aircraft tracks and noise levels. This application can be consulted on
www.aena.es

NOISE LEVEL LIMITS

There is a Spanish regulation, RD1367-2007, which sets noise limit immision values for airports. This applies only a new infrastructures, but we use it as a guide. We started to publish these data in Aena-Web in January 2010.

CHAPTER 2 RESTRICTIONS
Chapter 2 airplanes >75,000 lbs are banned from operating at airports in EU Member States as of April 1, 2002.

CHAPTER 3 RESTRICTIONS

3/2010
Based on a Spanish regulation (RD1257/2003), the airport is going to introduce operational restrictions on marginally compliant stage 3 / chapter 3 airplanes. Now, the restriction are pended of approval by AESA (Air Security State Agency) and it is planned that there will be applied during this year. The restrictions are:

* It will not be allowed the marginally compliant airplanes which had not operated before.

* It will not be allowed to increase the operation number for the marginally compliant airplanes.

* Companies will have to present the noise certificates and the noise abatement procedures of the marginally compliant airplanes.

* Companies will have to present a gradual retirement program for the marginally compliant airplanes, so the retirement was total in 5 years and with a reduction ratio not inferior at 20% a year.
