Finnair has launched a project at Helsinki airport where passengers voluntarily undergo weighing before boarding to refine instructions for passengers. The pilot began on Monday and 800 volunteers had already participated by Thursday morning. The airline plans to weigh 1,200 passengers in the winter season. Airlines calculate the weight of planes before takeoff, including everyone on board, hand luggage, and cargo. The weight affects seating arrangements, passenger capacity, and luggage allowance. Accurate weight measurements can enhance passenger safety on flights.
