How is Bangkok Airways now weighing passengers before boarding?

Bangkok Airways Public Company Limited is now a member of the Watchers Club, joining the ranks of other airlines. In order to precisely calculate the total weight of people and their accompanying carry-on luggage, the airline attempts to use standardized average weight data.

The company will formally certify that the data will be kept private and will be employed solely to enhance the information on the typical average weight.

A positive response from customers is what the company is hoping for. A standard weights survey must be carried out in accordance with the international civil aviation standard regarding the use of standard passenger and baggage weights for weight and balance calculation purposes in order to ensure the safety and effectiveness of a flight and to confirm that the actual weight does not exceed the maximum take-off weight limitation.
