1. FRENCH MINISTERIAL DECREE MARCH 2nd, 2010

The French ministerial decree of March 2nd, 2010 (published April 2nd, 2010) concerns the regulations for noise abatement at NICE COTE D’AZUR airfield. Failure to comply with the provisions stated in this decree may result in the filing of an infringement report and may
lead the ACNUSA (Airport Noise Nuisance Control Authority) to issue a penalty in the form of an administrative fine for the maximum amount of 20 000 euros for a legal entity, in accordance with the provisions of Article L.227-4 of the Civil Aviation Code.

These provisions are the following:

1.1 Night flights
1.1.1 "The cumulative margin of a turbojet engine" is defined as the sum of the difference between the three points between the certified noise level and the admissible level as defined in the International Civil Aviation Organization (December 7th, 1944) Annexe 16, Volume I, Part II, Chapter 3 for each of the three measurement points as defined in this Annex.

1.1.2 All commercial flight companies arriving or departing from NICE COTE D’AZUR airfield must publish in their operating manuals the classification and the cumulative margin of their aircraft.

1.1.3 Turbojet aircraft not complying with standards specified in International Civil Aviation Organization Annex 16, Volume I, Part II, Chapter 3 or Chapter 4, are not allowed at NICE COTE D’AZUR airfield to:

- land between 2330 and 0615 local time for arrivals on the apron;
- depart between 2315 and 0600 local time for departures from the

1.1.4 Starting from October 31st, 2010 - NO jet aircraft whose noise certification
corresponds with the norms according to the International Civil Aviation Organisation (December 7th, 1944) Annex 16 Volume I, Part II, Chapter 3 with a cumulative margin < 10 EPNdB can :

- land between 2330 and 0615 (local time) for arrival on the apron;
- depart between 2315 and 0600 for departure from the apron.

From 30th October 2011 onwards, provided that provisions specified in Paragraph 7 are met, no aircraft equipped with turbojet engines the acoustic certification of which complies with the standards of Chapter 3 of the second part of the first volume of Appendix 16 of the Convention on International Civil Aviation dated 7th December 1944 with a cumulative margin lower than 13 EPNdB shall:

- land between 11:30 pm and 6:15 am local time of arrival on the parking area;
- take off between 11:15 pm and 6 am local time of departure from the parking area.

Engine tests are not allowed between 2100-0600 local time. Derogations may be granted between 2100-2300 local time, or between 0500-0600 local time for glight safety reasons by the Prefect of the Alpes-Maritimes on prior request from the person in charge of flight (aircraft owner, technical or commercial operator).

NOISE SURCHARGE
Updated by the airport 2/2011

In order to calculate the landing fee(s) excluding passenger fee, etc, follow the three part process. First calculate the landing fee, next calculate the adjustment to the landing fee and then calculate the noise tax.
LANDING FEE:
* Note: Per AIP France 05 Jul 07, GEN 4.1.1 under Airport Fees, 1.1 Landing Fee - This fee is payable by any aircraft making a landing or water landing at an airport open to the public. It is calculated according to the maximum take off weight indicated on the certificate of airworthiness of the aircraft, rounded off to the next HIGHER ton.
International and Domestic and UE
MTOW in Tonnes(t)* Fixed Charge + Rate per tonne
Up to 18 tonnes EUR 50.67  
18 to 25 tonnes EUR 76.9 + 3.748 over 18 tonnes
25 to 75 tonnes EUR 305.51 + 4.572 over 25 tonnes
over 75 tonnes EUR 305.51 + 7.29 over 50 tonnes

ADJUSTMENT TO THE LANDING FEE:

Since 1984, the landing fee is adjusted according to the aircraft's acoustic group.

TAX ON AIR NOISE POLLUTION - click here for the details


The noise tax is a special tax created in 2001, named TNSA in addition to the landing fee which is based on the aircraft's acoustic group.

The formula for the noise tax which is applied to each take-off:

TNSA= t x c x log(MTOW)

t= Unit rate: EUR 6.00 (adjusted each year based on the domestic retail price index)
c = Coefficient according to the departure time and to the acoustic group to which the aircraft belongs.
