Hello AE forums. I was wondering if there is a way to calculate the "other" section of expenses on flights before starting them. I'm trying to run a small airline running regional routes using the PC12, and for internationals I have found it difficult to see if they will make money other than doing it by trial and error. I'm a pretty big numbers person so I try to plan out routes before adding frequencies and such, but finding out if they will be profitable has been difficult as it relates to the "other" section of expenses on routes. For example, I had a route running Switzerland to Sweden and Switzerland to Greece where other is my biggest expense preventing me from making money. At first I thought it was because these are international routes, but then I started Switzerland to Austria which seemed to make money even though it is an international routes. So what is factored in the "others" expense that I can calculate in reducing to open more variable routes? Thanks!

As far as I've deduced, other fees seem to be landing fees and departure fees at your airports that you serve on the route you're serving. There really is no way to calculate it, but as a general rule I've found that the bigger the airport the higher the fees. There are exceptions to the rule of course, but that's just what I've noticed.
