  • 90% take-off on runway 30 North-West, towards Bargellino area;
  • 30% at landings for runway 12 Southeast, from Bargellino area.

In case the detection system of take-off and landing routes should not be capable of detecting the take-off and/or landing route as a result of shutdown of the transponder on board and/or other technical causes, the full rate Iresa tax will be calculated.

IRESA tax is due by carriers, based on Bologna Airport invoices and proceeds are periodically remitted by Bologna Airport to Emilia-Romagna Region.

In order to operate the levy from 1st January 2020, carriers should send the noise certificate of their fleet’s aircrafts through this e-mail address airsideoperation@bologna-airport.it.

In the absence of this information and of the noise certificate, the rate of € 0.50 per ton or fraction of the maximum take-off weight will be applied.
