Passenger Weighing, Allocated Seating & Boarding

Due to the characteristics of our aircraft, we must weigh each passenger at check-in. This is a requirement under aviation law for our aircraft type, and this will be completely confidential.

Passenger seating will be allocated at check in and confirmed on their boarding card.

To help reinforce security on who travel on board our aircraft, reasonable steps are taken to confirm the identity of each passenger intending to board a flight. Please have your boarding card and photographic ID available for inspection.
