Why is flying so expensive?

Why is flying so expensive?

Everyone thinks it is the price of fuel that makes flying so expensive but actually that isn’t true, the fuel on the below example works out as 104.7MPG per person!

Here is a run down of the costs:

  • Fuel
  • Crew costs
  • Landing/Takeoff charges at airports (use of the airport)
  • Taxes (varies by country)
  • Cost of the plane divided by the amount of time it has flown
  • Repair costs of aircraft
  • Other business costs for the airline
  • Insurance for the plane
  • Small amount of profit for the airline per person (as little as a few quid per person)

The good news is generally flight is getting cheaper! Watch this for all the details:

Important things to remember with everything we post:

  • If you earn over your personal allowance (currently £12,570 a year) HMRC need to get their % cut (even if the money is in cash or from another country)
  • If you’re working for yourself / earning an income on the side you need to let HMRC know – There are numerous benefits but also some drawbacks
  • You need to always ensure whatever you’re doing is legal and not hurting anyone else – be careful and always think twice
  • Some income streams may require you to have DBS check, licence, insurance or qualifications before you can start to profit from it, do your research.
  • Be careful that any additional income doesn’t compromise your studies or main income/job
  • If you work for a company check your contract, if you don’t inform them you’re working on other side projects outside of work they may have grounds to ownership on this work
