Notice of Increase in the Number of Air Carrier Flights Available for Allocation at Long Beach Airport

The Airport Noise Compatibility Ordinance (Noise Ordinance) for the City of Long Beach (City) establishes a Community Noise Equivalent Level (CNEL) noise budget for air carrier flights at Long Beach Airport (Airport) set in the baseline year of 1989-1990. The Noise Ordinance allows Air Carriers to operate a minimum of forty-one (41) flights per day. Under the Noise Ordinance, however, the number of flights must be increased above the forty-one (41) flight limit if all flights in that category operate at or below the 1989-1990 baseline CNEL noise budget. Therefore, the Airport must determine on an annual basis whether additional flights must be allocated based upon the cumulative noise generated by air carrier operations during the prior twelve (12) month period. Additional flights above the forty-one (41) flight limit myst be allocated to the extent the Airport Director determines that initiation of service utilizing those flights will not lead the air carriers, as a group, to exceed the noise levels established in the baseline noise budget.
