In a recent announcement, Bangkok Airways has introduced a new policy aimed at enhancing flight safety and efficiency. In alignment with international civil aviation standards, the airline has emphasized the importance of accurate weight and balance calculations for every flight. To achieve this, Bangkok Airways will be conducting a standard weights survey from September 15 to October 31, 2023, by weighing passengers, including their carry-on baggage, at the boarding gate. This proactive measure ensures that the actual weight of passengers and their belongings remains within the maximum take-off weight limits, a crucial aspect of aviation safety. The airline has assured passengers that all collected information will be treated with the utmost confidentiality and will serve to update standard passenger and baggage weights for more precise flight planning. Bangkok Airways values and appreciates the cooperation of its passengers in ensuring the safety and efficiency of their flights.
