Airport and noise

The minimization of the aircraft-generated noise affecting the territory and resident communities is a paramount priority for Naples Airport in view of its balanced and sustainable management.

For this reason, it is important to measure the noise produced by aircrafts in order to objectively monitor the evolution of this phenomenon over time and to assess the efficacy of the adopted measures.

To measure aircraft-generated noise, the regulation prescribes the adoption of ad hoc method and metrics.

Indeed, the level of noise is measured during the whole day and not just during the single noise event, thus allowing quantifying the amount of energy associated to acoustic events unfolding over a long period. As for night events, the value becomes ten times greater since these events cause more disturbances indeed.
