ECONOMIC INCENTIVES FOR NOISE ABATEMENT AT AIRPORTS

Taxes levied on aircraft landings that involve high decibel levels are proposed as a means of encouraging manufacturers and airlines to reduce aircraft noise emissions. It is suggested that the taxes, or noise charges, be based on the cost of noise abatement measures put into effect at airports. Aircraft noise charges instituted by the Netherlands, France, Japan and Germany are considered.
