The Athens International Airport is one of the biggest infrastructure projects in Greece with a strong enterprising. In accordance with the European Directive 2002/49/EC and Joint Ministerial Decision 13586/724-28/3/06, in cooperation with the Ministry of Environment and Energy and the Civil Aviation Authority, AIA has produced the necessary study for Strategic Noise Map, including a review of the Aircraft Noise Action Plan. According to this, the study should be repeated every 5 years. This project concerns the Strategic Noise Map 2017 (traffic data 2016) and includes the solution of the appropriate acoustic model with the aim of creating the Strategic Noise Maps of the indicators Lden & Lnight for the year 2016, based on the methodology ECAC.CEACDoc.29 "Report on Standard Method of Computing Noise Contours around Civil Airports". The 2017 SNM was developed using the CadnaA special airborne noise calculation software and based on the relevant Joint Ministerial Decision (JMD) 13586/724. The relevant analysis was based on the provisions of 2002/49/EC using analytic aircraft traffic tables per day/runway/procedure for the year 2016 (with the exception of helicopters, military and other special flights) categorized according to the relevant recommendation of the 6th of August 2003 Committee (2003/613/EC). The results of the comparative views of the SNMs 2007, 2012 and 2017 (2006, 2011 and 2016 data) are given in figures for the Lden & Lnight limits of the Greek legislation. It is noted, that the increase of the movements combined with the implementation of the "Tango" SIC procedure contributes to the non-negative development of the effects of the air noise, resulting in the new isotonic curves of the highest statutory limits of the noise indicators: Lden ≤70dB (A) and Lnight ≤60dB (A) continue to be limited within the boundaries of the airport.
