Korean Air will soon begin weighing passengers as well as their carry-on items at two different airports in South Korea.
According to USA Today, the airline is participating in the update of Korea’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport (MOLIT) “Aircraft Weight and Balance Management Standards,” which is calculated every five years to help determine weight distribution on airplanes.
Those affected — who will have to be weighed by airline staff — are those traveling on domestic flights from Gimpo Airport in Seoul between August 28 and September 6, as well as passengers at Incheon International Airport from September 8 through September 19.
Passenger weight will not affect boarding and will not be connected to their identification, so travelers shouldn’t need to worry about the data collection.
Air New Zealand did the same with its international network this summer, assuring travelers that it was a necessary measure to continue aircraft safety.
