Taxes collected by the Airport Operator on behalf of Public Authorities

Additional tax on pax boarding fees
Art.2, c. 11, L.350 /03 and following modifications and updates - € 6,50 for departing pax

Emilia-Romagna Region introduced noise charge IRESA (Regional Tax on aircraft noise emissions) effective from 1st January 2020.
This tax is calculated for each landing and take-off movement, on MTOW (maximum take-off weight of the aircraft) and its amount will depend on the noise certification chapter of each aircraft, as well as on a number of other parameters set forth in art. 16 of the Regional Law 21/12/2012 nbr 15 and following modifications and updates.

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

Please see Emilia-Romagna Region web site for all information about IRESA law, rates and penalty.

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.
operations@tagbologna.com for General Aviation.

In case of non-compliance with the request to transmit noise certificates by the date of the flight operations, Aeroporto G. Marconi di Bologna is required, as per the Agreement with Emilia-Romagna Region, to apply the rate of € 0.50 per ton or fraction of the maximum take-off weight.

As regards the tax exemptions, Carriers entitled not to be taxed (art. 15 of RL 21/12/2016) are responsible for sending Bologna Airport all the data necessary to apply the exemption by the date of their flight operations (airsideoperation@bologna-airport.it; General Aviation operations@tagbologna.com).
