Boeing 737-200 Ban In The UK At The End Of 2005

Thu May 19, 2005 12:25 am

Hi,

I have heard this from a member on another aviation site (plane-mad), the member said there is to be a ban on the Boeing 737-200's in the UK from the start of 2006, due to the noise they make.

Personally, I think its a load of rubbish. I was just wondering if anyone has heard anything else.

Don't think that I am silly for believing (or not) what a member has said of another website, I was just wondering if anyone has heard anything else about this, so I can confirm its a load of twoddle.

Cheers, Ryan  Smile

Those B-737-200s that have hush kits installed meet the Stage 3 requirements. UK is a member of ICAO, thus cannot change the noise requirements without ICAO approval. This seems to be just a rumor, there are still a lot of B-732s with a lot of useful life left in them.

What would European Aircharter do you mean! Palmair is operated by European, The would both be in trouble.

I always know when a 737-200 has taken off from Bournemouth, u can always hear them....

Though European is planning to get rid of the 737-200's to OZJET and then get 737-300's.

How many airlines are currently operating the 737-200 in Europe.

And yes, Ryan, I think this ban has been known for a long time, well I have known for a long time Big grin

I reckon it's a conspiracy by Boeing. They could make a killing replacing 732s with 737NGs.

I can't see there being a ban on the aircraft so much as noise abatement regulations mean it can't be used in the important places.

Palmair charter European to do the flights. Palmair would simply charter another airline with more modern aircraft and be done with it. Palmair would be fine. European would be in trouble.

There was something I read about a possible ban on 732s and other aircraft by the end of the year across Europe (ie an EU thing.) However this idea has long since been abolished, although I think they gave the power for individual airport authorities to ban such aircraft if they see fit.

The question is would this help in the battle against the NIMBYs. Would this make the neighbours more cooperative and tolerant of whatever an airport does?

From ICAO's website:

Commencing 1 January 2006, the new standard will apply to newly certificated aeroplanes and to Chapter 3 aeroplanes for which re-certification to Chapter 4 is requested.

I thought the ban on the older equipment was also due to EU emission laws. I seem to recall American hushkit manufacturers kicking up a stink about this as, understandably, it would limit the market for older aircraft flying with their hushkits.

It's an EU requirement, that goes further than ICAO Stage 3. Member states are free to apply whatever noise restrictions they like, hence the particularly severe noise restrictions at SNA, LCY etc etc.

IMO I hope they do get rid of the 732. Older aircraft are certain to be more dangerous. I'm not saying that something will happen if they remain in service or that a brand new 777 couldn't have a fault. There are plenty of newer versions of the 737 available. But generally age and safety don't mix well.

If you were to take a percentage of the 732's amongst other 737 varients in UK skies I'm sure it would be a very small majority. Perhaps Boeing could come to an agreement with airlines who still operate to the UK with the 732 and offer them a cut price deal on a new aircraft.

Just my thoguhts.

Is the Tu-154 allowed to operate in the EU? A few years ago, TE sold their 12 YAK-42Ds because they could no longer fly them to the EU. With the money raised from the sale (10 to Russia, 2 to the Lithuanian Olympic Committee), they bought 2 old B737-200s.

Charter someone else for their flights - it used to be Flightline (branded as Palmair) a few years ago with BAe146s, and prior to this they used a selection of UK charter airlines including Excalibur, Princess Air, TEA UK, Amber Air and Airways International Cymru.

Don't you think European would already be aware?

Rubbish. The suggestion that old is dangerous is false. Dangerous can be down to a a variety of reasons... maintenance, airmanship, design etc..

I believe that the EU was originally planning to ban noisier a/c like the 732 (and 722 for that matter), but that pressure was applied by the US to stop the ban as this would discriminate against US-built a/c - the reasoning was that its mainly US-built aircraft that are the noisy ones, and banning them would potentially inhibit parts sales.

Thats what I thought as well. Weren't Bath Travel and Travel City Direct (who at the time were using EAC for their Florida Programme) going to undertake a joint buyout of EAC. All fell through though, and EAC remains Stoddard's company.

Yeah, didnt think of that one! Opps! Anyhow, I guess they'd still be in trouble, I dount they've got the cash and resources to fund fleet re-newal.

tu154m flys regularly into LHR or LGW with pulkovo also balkan holidays leases 3 tu154m from hemus air which you will regularly see (sometimes two at a time) at MAN and other airports in the uk.

you mean government officials know what a plane is??????  cool 
i dont see the point in banning a the 732 as they will probably start to die out sooner or later and its just like banning a steam engine as they make lots of noise so why pick on the aircraft industry to me it sounds like a load of rubbish

This is not surprising considering that most of the 737-200 fleet are getting way up there in terms of airframe life anyway. I mean, WN has already phased out their 732 fleet, so....

I hope they don't kill off the 737-200's they are my favorite aeroplane and after working on all of Ryanairs 732's I would be very sad to see them disappear although Ryanair have sadly started to retire them.
They are also much better looking that Airbus's which I don't like at all.
