New Zealand airline Air New Zealand ask voluntary passengers to weigh themselves before boarding international flights departing from Auckland between May 29 and July 2 to conduct a study on aviation safety.

The airline aims to weigh more than 10,000 travelers with their hand luggage for a study that is carried out every five years to improve the safety of aircraft at the request of the Civil Aviation Authority, according to a statement from Air New Zealand quoted on Tuesday by the newspaper “New Zealand Herald”.

Voluntary passengers will be able to weigh themselves on special scales at the access doors to the terminals and the data will be collected anonymously at the Auckland International Airportin the north of the country.

This study is conducted every five years, but was interrupted for several years due to the covid-19 pandemic.

Air New Zealand, the flag carrier of New Zealandcarried out a similar study in 2015 for international flights and in 2021 carried out another one for domestic flights.

For travelers who do not want to face their weight, the airline has ensured that they will not see if they have extra kilos.

“We know that getting on a scale can be overwhelming. We want to assure our customers that there will be no visible screen anywhere,” Air New Zealand said.
