131. Mr. S. Brennan asked the Minister for Transport, Energy and  Communications if he will provide in tabular form the landing charges at Dublin Airport compared with landing charges at the main airports in other EU capital cities. [1776/95]
Minister for Transport, Energy and Communications (Mr. Lowry) Michael Lowry
Minister for Transport, Energy and Communications (Mr. Lowry): The details sought by the Deputy, as supplied by Aer Rianta, are shown in the following table.
 This table shows the total airport charges which apply to a B737-400, effective from 1 September 1994. The charges listed include landing fees and passenger load fees in addition to other charges such as parking charges, noise reduction rebates and navaid charges where applicable. Data on total charges have been provided because it is not possible to isolate landing charges specifically at airports abroad.
