FAQ n.138519

Can the operation of aircraft in certain areas be prohibited or restricted for environmental reasons?


A restricted or prohibited area may also be established by a State due to underlying environmental reasons. However, irrespective of the objective that the establishment of such a restriction or prohibitions serves, information about restricted or prohibited areas needs to be published in the State’s AIP, under section ‘ENR 5.1 Prohibited, restricted and danger areas’, as per the provisions of Regulation (EU) 2017/373 and depicted in the relevant aeronautical charts.
