NOISE LEVEL LIMITS
The Swiss government agreed to place new noise limits on the country's largest airports. The decision by the Swiss Federal Council closes a loophole in existing legislation. In December 1986 the government adopted the Ordinance on Noise Abatement, which set noise limit values for road and rail traffic but not for aircraft noise. The new restrictions will apply to Zurich-Kloten, Geneva-Contain, Lugano and Bern. The new measure limits noise levels to a maximum of 65 decibels on the average in areas where residential housing, small businesses, and farms are located. A daily average of 70 decibels is fixed for industry areas near the affected airports. The maximum average for residential areas will be lowered to 57 decibels between the hours of 10pm-12am and 5am-6am. A ban on flights by particularly loud aircraft also will apply during these hours. A formal ban on flights between 12am and 5am will also be introduced for Zurich and Geneva; Lugano and Bern will have flights banned from 11pm to 6 am. A night-flight ban already exists in Switzerland via concession agreements with the airports, but not through any legislative act.

All aircraft types to be used for regular services at Lugano airport will be subject to an individual noise qualification prior to receiving operating rights.
