Directive 92/14/EEC and noisy "Chapter 2" aeroplanes

   Tue 11/06/2002

Under Article 2 of Directive 92/14/EEC(1) Member States must ensure that from 1 April 2002 aeroplanes which are not equipped with hushkits, as referred to in Chapter 2 of Annex 16 to the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation) Convention, cannot operate at airports situated in their territory.

1. Does the Commission know whether all the Member States are applying this provision?

2. Is the Commission aware of airports which are at present still authorising such planes to operate? Which airports are they?

3. What action will the Commission take against the Member States and the airports which in practice are not applying the directive?
