Operating Costs For Airliners

Mon Feb 06, 2006 1:23 pm

Hi all -

I'm trying to do a little informal research and I've been trying to find some average operating costs per hour for different airplanes. Specifically, I'm looking for 737 variants, the new ERJ-170/175/190/195, and perhaps others in the 70-200 seat arena. I was wondering if anyone had any good resources available to the public...I've found a couple places that are pay for information, but being a poor college student I really can't afford to pay 60-400USD for information about a plane I can't even fly  Sad

I did find this site: http://www.icao.int/icao/en/ro/allpirg/allpirg4/wp28app.pdf

It has some good information for several of the planes I'm looking for, but I'm not sure how up to date they are being almost 6 years old (I figure fuel consumption would be same but other stuff, who knows?).

Any advice would be greatly appreciated  Smile

Ask yourself, how expensive is fuel, then multiply this by the number of litres you can fill a 737 with... thats how expensive the fuel bill is per flight...

Well, yes, but I also was interested in other expenses such as average maintenance costs per hour, insurance, any other expenses a typical airline might encounter (except manpower costs).

I do not have infos for you, but I advice you to contact the manufacturers telling them that you are a student and usually they will provide you what you need. I did it once for datas on the A319 and got everything from Airbus (fuel, maintenance, assurance, crew,....)
Next flight: hopefully soon...

Look at Air Transport World http://www.atwonline.com/channels/dataAirlineEconomics/index.html
They publish lots of US data every month on operating costs for airliners.

Excellent advice HBDAN! In the case of Boeing, try Randy Baseler, VP of marketing at Boeing. He has a blog here
