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!!

Kindly indicate.

The only error here is, you don't fuel planes with petrol which render the figures inaccurate.

Great. I like ur logical flow too. I have always wanted to know. At least we should have a rule of thumb. This is for the 747. 12 litres per Km. 200 per liter. The rest na small small changes. Thanks.

The only concern I have with your calculation is the exchange rate applied. Let's assume the payment for the fuel in Nigeria is made in USD, I doubt people in the Aviation industry would source the foreign currency in the blackmarket. Since they would get it via official channels, I guess the rate will be less than N350/$;official rate is about N305/$ (I guess)
Re: The Cost Of Fueling A Plane From Lagos To London by Ajanacool(m): 12:29pm On Sep 14, 2018
So a plane can carry 60,000+ fuel in its tank at once? that's double of what a trailer struggles to carry from Lagos up north for days.

There are plane with 100000Ltrs capacity. the two wings have fuel compartment, and not only that.

Depending on the type of plane, Lufthansa have 60k+ capacity.
Cargo planes have 100k+ capacity

I like your straight forward calculations.

Let me quickly check into my Professor Cuthbert Calculus mode and see if I could invent solar powered batteries for Boeings so that they will have no need for fuel anymore.

It will take a lot of calculations so please help me tell Captain Haddock that I don't need any of his Blistering Barnacles bleating anywhere around me in the days to come.

I'd have asked Thompson and Thompson to handle it, but their hats (and canes) are in transit..... Or rather the transit is in their hats and or canes.
