The Boeing 747 will take an average of 500 passenger and average price of flight to London from Lagos is ₦200,000. That means the airline operator's makes ₦100,000,000 from a flight ,when fuel and maintenance costs have been removed I believe they will still make huge profit

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!!

whats the cost of the same journey per person and how many people can board the plane. again, whats the number of planes that make that journey daily on the average for a particular airline.
what are the pilots paid(monthly or per trip). whats the cost of a plane.
i want to do a rough imagination of what these airlines make.

Good calculation.

There are other associated charges.

Airport fee
Taxes
Etc

Nice analysis op. Please can you also try and find out how much it cost for parking a plane in a standard airport per hour. Nigerians need to know how much was really spent on our president's medical trip that lasted more than three months.

The 747 does not fly locally. Until the day I saw BA's 747 early morning into LOS. I did not believe they could land in Nigeria. Use the common 737 for the example. Thanks.

It depends on the model of plane being used , the type of engine deployed , the takeoff weight and what cruise height the plane will be going ... the aircraft u used the Boeing 747 is a very wrong plane to use for this because of its high operating cost and large Four turbofan engines which are all guzzlers and besides no Airline operated it's on the route you mentioned ....You should have used a two engine long range jet like the Airbus A350 or the Boeing 737 Max or Boeing 777 for this as they would have given fairer average fuel consumption data.
