Civil Aircraft Fuel Efficiency Data
Fuel Efficiencies for all active and future civil passenger and cargo aircraft:
by MPG for airframe
by Payload Ton Miles Per Gallon
by Passenger Miles Per Gallon (PMPG)
by Cargo Ton Miles Per Gallon (CTMPG)

Fuel Efficiencies for all active and future civil dedicated cargo freighters:
by Cargo Ton Miles Per Gallon (CTMPG)

Based on our extensive database, from a fuel efficiency perspective, we are able to compare civil passenger and cargo aircraft. We have sorted aircraft into categories based on their respective maximum flight ranges.

We have fuel efficiency data for all active passenger aircraft at any available pitch configuration. For example, commonly used aircraft by low-fares airlines, such as the Boeing 737-800, also have fuel efficiencies with all economy (Y-pitch) configurations.

Naturally, we also have other aircraft characteristics and stats in our database, such as: range, passenger and cargo capacities, engine types, no. of active aircraft in world civil fleet, no. of active orders etc.

Sample: Our calculations indicate that the Boeing 787-8 (Dreamliner) will be about 15.8% more fuel efficient than a Boeing 767-300ER, which is one of the aircraft types the 787-8 will be likely to replace. Note that both aircraft were compared carrying a full load of passengers and cargo and flying their maximum ranges at maximum cargo and passenger capacity.

Civil Aircraft Emissions Data (CO2 Emissions)
Emissions for all active and future civil passenger and cargo aircraft:


by CO2 emissions in lbs per mile
by CO2 emissions in lbs per payload ton mile
by CO2 emissions in lbs per passenger mile
by CO2 emissions in lbs per cargo ton mile

Emissions for all active and future civil dedicated cargo freighters:

by CO2 emissions per cargo ton mile
