Airport of Zurich Noise Fund
The Airport of Zurich Noise Fund (AZNF) is a scheme for offsetting costs incurred through aircraft noise.
As it operates under licence from the federal government, Flughafen Zürich AG has the right to refinance all costs incurred in connection with flight operations through charges.
This refinancing is carried out using the following schemes:
- Daytime noise charge as an addition to the landing charge
- Night-time noise charge (for take-offs and landings between 09:00 p.m. and 07:00 a.m.)
The intended purpose of the money raised by the Airport of Zurich Noise Fund (AZNF) and the members of the AZNF committee are defined in the corresponding regulations. The AZNF's income and expenditures are reported on a voluntary basis in Flughafen Zürich AG's Annual Report in order to ensure transparency in how the funds are used.
