CINCINNATI/NORTHERN KENTUCKY INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT AND DELTA WORKING TO REDUCE AIRCRAFT NOISE

 CINCINNATI/NORTHERN KENTUCKY INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
 AND DELTA WORKING TO REDUCE AIRCRAFT NOISE
 HEBRON, Ky., April 9 /PRNewswire/ -- The Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport and Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) have announced a series of actions designed to reduce noise in the upcoming summer travel season and to accelerate completion of the comprehensive noise compatibility study being conducted for the airport. The joint actions are part of the continuing effort by both parties in cooperation with the communities' noise abatement program to develop and implement an overall plan of airport noise reduction at the earliest date.
 The steps to be taken by Delta and the airport to mitigate noise in the coming months include:
 -- The airport will accelerate completion of its portion of the
 noise compatibility (Part 150) study. The study will be
 submitted to the FAA no later than October 1992 -- months
 sooner than originally forecast.
 -- The airport will use proceeds from any passenger facility
 charge for its noise mitigation program. Furthermore, the
 airport will seek full and immediate funding from the
 federal government to cover the total cost of the noise
 mitigation program.
 -- Consistent with safety and operational requirements, the
 airport will work to maximize the use of the east/west
 runway, thereby minimizing the impact of noise on local
 citizens.
 -- Delta will make every effort to use the east/west runway
 during off-peak hours, consistent with safety and
 operational requirements. To the greatest extent possible,
 Delta departures will use the east/west runway between the
 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m. period. The airline is also
 exploring the feasibility of shifting other departures
 throughout the day to the east/west runway.
 -- Delta is increasing the number of Stage III aircraft
 departures at the airport by 38 percent when comparing summer
 1992 with the airline's summer 1991 schedule.
 -- Delta will eliminate all Stage II DC-9 aircraft from its
 Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky operations by the end of 1992.
 -- Delta will continue operational procedures on arrivals from
 the north that reduce noise.
 -- Delta will support the airport's use of any passenger
 facilities charges and the application for additional
 federal monies to carry out the noise mitigation program.
