Considering Germany is thinking about implementing new taxes to increase costs for commercial flights due to how cheap flights have become and the pollution they produce, I was thinking how much does running an airliner actually cost.
I've seen flights from Germany to Mallorca for less than 20 € and even if those are just a few seats and with next to no service, I was wondering, how much does a flight like that acutally cost. - Including fuel, all fees, the crew (average wages), maintainance cycles and if possible the aircraft purchase price itself.
For example, if an aircraft does 6 two hour flights a day and cost an initial 108 million € for an A320neo, assuming a 30 years lifetime and a resell value of maybe 30 million after that (is that realistic?) that would average the cost of the aircraft itself at roughly 7200 € per day or 1200 € per flight.
Regardless of airlines themselves, what are the ballpark values for all costs (fuel, crew, aircraft, fees, anything I didn't think about...) of an airliner per flight (for the sake of the argument assuming A320neo on short distance fligths, e.g. 2hrs)?
