See What It Costs To Fuel A Plane From Lagos To London


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!!
