Reducing aircraft noise

On 1 December 1999 the European Commission declared itself in favour of defining more restrictive international standards for aircraft noise and gaseous emissions. It takes the view that if no international negotiations are held it could be forced to set such standards at European level. By the simultaneous adoption of a specific communication, the Commission also commits itself to putting an end to the worrying situation as regards air traffic delays, the environmental impact of which is considerable.
