New Zealand airline Air New Zealand will ask volunteer passengers to weigh yourself before boarding on international flights departing Auckland between May 29 and July 2 to conduct a study on aviation security.
The airline aims to collect data from more than 10,000 travelers with their hand luggage for a study that is carried out every five years to improve aircraft safety at the request of the Civil Aviation Authorityaccording to a statement from Air New Zealand quoted on Tuesday by the New Zealand Herald newspaper.
Voluntary passengers will be able to weigh themselves in special scales at the access doors to the terminals and the data will be collected anonymous at Auckland International Airport, in the north of the country.
Air New Zealand, the flag carrier of New Zealand, conducted a similar study in 2015 for flights international and in 2021 carried out another for flights domestic. However, the study in question had been seen interrupted for several years due to the pandemic.
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.
