Finnair weighing passengers : Finnair on Monday confirmed that it will begin weighing passengers on a voluntary basis at Helsinki Airport between late October and early November. There is a reason behind this decision as airline wants a more accurate metric for determining aircraft weight and balance, which can in turn make operations more efficient.
The weighing scales will be placed close to the departure gates with the objective of weighing 100–150 passengers together with their carry-on luggage. The reading on the scale will be seen only by the customer service agent conducting the weighing and entered into the database in an anonymous form.In addition to weight, the airline will gather information about the customer’s age, gender, travel purpose, passenger class and checked-in luggage. About 1,000 to 1,500 volunteers total will be needed in order to have sufficient data.
