The Cost Of Fueling A Plane From Lagos To London by Donald3d(m): 6:53pm On Sep 13, 2018
I have been very inquisitive about air travel lately. This took me on a journey to actually find out how much it costs to fuel planes.
In this article, we would be using a Boeing 747 as reference and data (cost of aviation fuel) provided by IATA (International Air Transport Association).We would be calculating how much fuel would be consumed on a flight from Lagos (MMA) to London (Heathrow).
First, let’s get some parameters right

Distance between the two airports :
Approx. 5,006 Km

Time taken for the journey :
6 hours 35 mins , which is equal to 395 mins

Cost of aviation fuel :

According to IATA, it costs 211.23 cts/gal
cts/gal is a term used in aviation,it means cents per gallon.
Lets convert this figure to ₦/litre
Lets use 360 per $
One dollar is 100 cents
211.23 cents = 2.11 dollars
To Naira = ₦759.6
This figure is per gallon
1 Gallon is approx. 3.79 litres
That means its costs ₦759.6 per 3.79 litres
That gives us ₦200.42 per litre

Quantity of fuel used for the journey :
The Boeing 747 uses about 12 litres per kilometre
Remember we are travelling 5,006 Km
That’s 60,072 litres consumed from Lagos to London
Let’s covert that to Naira
Remember it costs ₦200.42 per litre
That brings the total cost of fuel to travel from Lagos to London to ₦12,039,630.24!!

Noticed any error ?
Kindly indicate.
And don’t forget to share !!

But it is still cheap compared to Lagos to Uyo by road. This is the one that affects the ordinary Nigerian.

Our President will not mind going 20times a month. He has already spent more times on wings than in his office.

That brings the total cost of fuel to travel from Lagos to London to ₦12,039,630.24[quote][/quote]

Na wa oooh, this multiply with the go come of Baba for medical treatment.

One go come is ₦12,039,630.24 *2= ₦ 24,079,260.5
Average Salary for new graduate ₦50,000
Number of new graduate salary spent on one go come
₦ 24,079,260.5/₦50,000= 481.58521
That's 481 graduate salary for transport fare.
I know the fuel for the presidential jet will be definitely different maybe lesser than this
