In Russia may restrict noisy aircraft flying at night, said yesterday the head of the Federal Air Transport Agency Alexander Neradko. Ministry of Transport has already sent a proposal for airliners, flying in the area of the Moscow aviation hub, and whose noise characteristics do not meet the standards of the International Civil Aviation Organization. If the ministry approves it, the limitation may come into force on January 1, 2011. Head of Federal Air Transport Agency said that it and discussed with representatives of the airlines 'and' they agree. " Rosaviatsia sent their proposals and in the Moscow airports.
On passenger service restrictions should not impact, as companies gradually deduce noisiest Il-86, Tu-134 and Tu-154, updating the park. By the way, even in Europe the major airports at night do not work, so the desire to limit the flights of older versions is quite logical, experts say. Especially in the Russian towns in recent years were built without permission from the airports, even in the forbidden zone for this. Local authorities gave approval for construction, not even putting airports in popularity. As a result, suffer those who bought a house. Neradko said that the ban due to the fact that airports Domodedovo, Sheremetyevo and Vnukovo are located near residential areas and the mass of citizens is constantly receiving complaints on noise.

However Rosaviatsia plans in the future to extend it to other cities within the boundaries of which are airports, for example, Omsk and Irkutsk. In addition, Neradko confirmed that in Vnukovo will be introduced and other restrictions on flights, but all types of aircraft because of reconstruction in the spring of 2011 the main runway and 'cross' – the intersection of two bands. "Restrictions will apply for 72 days' – said the head of Russian aviation. And said that during this period flights will be able to make only aircraft that are not sufficiently involved in the repair of portions of the strips, the same basic number of aircraft will have to move to other airports. According Neradko, now solved the question of which airport to the reconstruction of the Vnukovo will host a special government flying squad. In general, the situation in civil aviation show revival in demand for flights. Russian airlines in January-September 2010 was taken by 27.4 percent over the same period last year. If the growth trend will continue until the end of the year, the number of transported Passengers can grow to 55 million people.
