How much fuel does a 737 passenger plane burn per hour?

How much fuel does a 737 passenger plane burn per hour?

Q: About how much fuel per hour does a medium-sized aircraft such as the 737 burn? A: In round numbers, a 737 will burn 5,000 pounds (750 gallons) an hour.

How much fuel does a 747 burn per hour?

The four engines of the Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet burn approximately 10 to 11 tonnes of fuel an hour when in the cruise. This equates to roughly 1 gallon (approximately 4 litres) of fuel every second. It can carry a maximum of 238,604 liters of fuel and it has a range of about 7,790 nautical miles.

How much fuel does a 737 burn per mile?

For a 737-800 with 162 passengers on a 1000 NM trip, it’s 96 mpg per passenger, or 0.593 mpg for the whole plane.

How much fuel does a 747 burn on takeoff?

A typical Boeing 747 passenger jet burns approximately 5,000 gallons (about 19,000 liters) of fuel during takeoff and as it climbs to cruising altitude. This means that a 747 burns through 10% of its total fuel capacity during takeoff alone.

Was the Concorde fuel-efficient?

Inefficient at low speeds When the Concorde was operating at Mach 2, it was known to be highly fuel-efficient. However, as a result of its design, it could burn up to two tons of fuel when simply taxiing to and from the runway.

Was the Concorde fuel efficient?

How does aviation fuel burn rate vary across routes?

An aviation fuel burn model using EMEP/EEA data measures fuel burn rate per seat per unit distance. Average fuel use rate per seat-distance is compared over the short-, medium-, and long-haul air markets. Variation of fuel use rates among routes is shown to depend on two key components, unit seat and unit distance.

How much fuel do airline passengers burn?

Let’s compare different airlines in terms of passengers per kilometres per litres (measure used by the International Council on Clean Transportation -ICCT-) with the graph below: From this figure, we can see for long haul an average of 31-32 passengers per km per litres of fuel burnt (US uses instead Pax Miles per Gallon).

How much fuel does it take to fuel a plane?

How much fuel per passenger an aircraft is consuming? Nowadays the fuel consumption is usually around 3 to 4 liters per passenger per 100 kilometers, which makes fuel the #1 cost for an airline (representing around 30% of total costs).

How many aircraft types can we extract fuel burn data from?

The flight schedules of 75 aircraft types for which we could get fuel burn data from the inventory data are extracted, and are highly representative of all major aircraft. The ICAO designators (4 digits) of aircraft types referred in this paper substitute for the model names as shown in Appendix Table A.1.
