We describe the cost that form an aircraft’s capital costs and how these differ between an ownership or a lease model.
When forming the Direct Operating Cost (DOC). The low fuel price of $1.50 per US Gallon has lowered the fuel’s part of DOC to around 20% for single aircraft and 30% for dual aisle aircraft on their typical mission types.
This means that other costs types in the DOC gets a more dominant role. We show which are the costs to look out for.
Finally we give the typical CASM (Cost per Available Seat Mile) values for single and dual aircraft in the market.
