NOISE SURCHARGE

4.1.1.4 Noise charges - Praha/Ruzyně airport

4.1.1.4.1 Basis for calculation of noise charge is noise category and aircraft MTOW according to Certificate of Airworthiness or Noise certificate of aircraft 



Noise charge is applied only to aircraft with MTOW over 9 tons.

If the condition according to Certificate of Airworthiness or Noise certificate of aircraft  is not met, the table value according to aircraft type used and wording according to 4.1.1.4.5 will be taken.

4.1.1.4.2 Aircraft are assigned to the noise category according to the following criteria related to the limits of ICAO Annex 16/I, Part II.

4.1.1.4.2.1 Aircraft certified according Chapter 3, 4 and 5 or
2 - 2.4.2.

The difference are calculated by substraction of noise level values given in noise certificate from noise limit according the appropriate chapter of part II of ICAO Annex 16/I. Aircraft is included into respective noise category according to the accrued difference in accordance with Chapter 4. In the case, that in some point the noise level is over the limit of the appropriate chapter of part II of ICAO Annex 16/I, aircraft is included into next higher noise category.

Category 1 – the accrued difference 15 EPNdB or more
Category 2 – the accrued difference from 10 to 14,9 EPNdB
Category 3 – the accrued difference from 5 to 9,9 EPNdB
Category 4 – the accrued difference from 0 to 4,9 EPNdB
Category 5 – the accrued difference less than 0 EPNdB or
aircraft certified according to Chapter 2 - 2.4.1.

4.1.1.4.3 Rate per tonne (including tonne initiated) of the MTOW:

Category 1 CZK 5.50 per tonne
Category 2 CZK 11.50 per tonne
Category 3 CZK 28.50 per tonne
Category 4 CZK 57.00 per tonne
Category 5 CZK 114.00 per tonne
*Rate per tonne (including tonne initiated) of the maximum take-off weight:

4.1.1.4.4 Flight of aircraft included in category 3, 4 or 5 in period from 2100 (2000) to 0500 (0400) will be charged three times the rate for the given noise category.

4.1.1.4.5 If the aircraft operator does not submit one of the required documents for noise category calculation according to 4.1.1.4.1 to the aerodrome operator (Data Management department) in written form before aircraft departure at the latest (if it is not stipulated otherwise), extra noise charge 50 EUR per 1 t of aircraft MTOW will be charged to the aircraft operator.
