Reports say airline will weigh international passengers for safety.

Air New Zealand assures passengers that their weight will not be displayed to other passengers.

In June, Air New Zealand is reportedly going to weigh its international passengers.

Average passenger weights will help pilots calculate aircraft weight and equilibrium.

Those who choose to participate will contribute to the airline’s safety, according to an official.

Until July 2, news.com.au reported that passengers who volunteer for the program will be weighed before certain Air New Zealand flights departing from Auckland International Airport.

Alastair James, the load control enhancement specialist for Air New Zealand, assured passengers that their weight would not be displayed.

“We weigh everything that goes on the aircraft, including cargo, meals, and luggage in the hold,” he explained.

“We use average weights for customer, crew, and cabin baggage, which we obtain from this survey.”

He was quoted as saying, “It’s important because we need to know the weight of everything that goes onto our aircraft.”

Mr. James reassured passengers that their weight information would be recorded confidentially on a computer screen and would not be displayed to other passengers.

The study will concentrate on international passengers, but in 2021, the airline also considered domestic passengers.

Mr. James acknowledged that standing on the scales can be intimidating.

“We would like to reassure our clients that there is no visible display anywhere. Even we are unable to determine your weight. It is entirely anonymous.

It’s easy, it’s voluntary, and by participating, you’ll help us fly you every time safely and efficiently.

According to news.com.au, Air New Zealand stated that at least 10,000 passengers were required to participate in the survey, which was mandated by the Civil Aviation Authority.

Hydrogen driving: We test the fuel cell Ineos Grenadier

Electric vehicles are the future, and everyone agrees on that. That is the mantra offered to motorists who are encouraged to convert to EVs. However, not everyone agrees that the future of motoring will be entirely dominated by plug-in electric vehicles; some believe hydrogen fuel cells may play an essential role. Ineos, owned by buccaneering boss Sir Jim Ratcliffe, is already developing a robust 4x4 EV called the Fusilier, but it is also considering hydrogen power.
