Lineage 1000 Variable Cost Breakdown

Variable costs are those that change depending on the usage of the aircraft. Variable costs can be broken down into hourly chunks.

This, therefore, results in an hourly variable cost figure. This figure is the cost per hour that the aircraft is flown.

There are five factors that we have built into the hourly variable cost figure. These values are the cost of fuel, maintenance, engine overhaul, crew, landing & handling fees, along with other various costs.

All these variables are proportional to the number of hours flown. For example, the more you fly the aircraft, the more fuel it will use.
