Fuel Useage At Major Airports?

Sat Jan 21, 2006 12:33 pm

Does anyone know what the approx Jet-A fuel usage is on a daily basis (in gallons) at the major airports in the USA? Like LAX, JFK, ORD, ATL? And which airport uses the most fuel?

any info would be appreciated!

since nobody answered you regarding US airports can I give you the figure for Heathrow, UK, maybe it is of interets
Heathrow needs about 20 million litres (5.3 million US gallons) daily. I donlt know the split regarding how much of that is reserves etc
But about 30% of that supply is now a problem following the fire at a major refinary in London last december and fuel rationing is in force at present in Heathrow and many a carrier is complaining about the extra cost of tankering fuel (United clains its costing them up to $20,000 a day)
