Why in Great Britain do want to weigh all air passengers?


Now aviation fuel is loaded, proceeding from average values of weight of passengers. The startup of The Fuel Matrix suggests to optimize expenses on fuel and to reduce emission of carbon dioxide of the Photo: depositphotos.com the British company wants to weigh all air passengers. As writes The Lonely Planet, the contradictory system of optimization of air transportation was offered by a startup of The Fuel Matrix. Now airlines fill planes from calculation that the average weight of men is 88 kilograms, women — 70 kilograms, children — 35 kilograms. As this averaging, often fuels appears more, than it is necessary for flight, and raising of excess aviation fuel in air also demands fuel expenses. As a result, by estimates of a startup, airlines on average load 1% more aviation fuel into the plane, and spend — 0.5% more than necessary. Expenses on aviation fuel make about a quarter of the total costs of airlines. The proposed solution — to install the weighing panels which will collect anonymous data on the weight of passengers before front desks and to correct volumes of gas station of airliners. The CEO of Association of civil aviation "Airport" Victor Gorbachev resolutely against this idea. Victor Gorbachev the CEO of Association of civil aviation "Airport" "That for nonsenses? And if there the half-plane of children on 30 kilograms everyone, it does not refuel at all? And if some extraordinary case and to it it is necessary to leave on the spare airport? For example, Moscow is closed — fog, and spare at Moscow — St. Petersburg and Nizhny Novgorod, it is necessary to reach them, with a small stock to sit down. And if it is necessary to take couple of detours there before sitting down? So let do not invent, and refuel as they are recommended by Air traffic control, and do not play the fool. And that we will get into the plane cautiously soon, there will be enough at it fuel or not, will ask the commander: fuels will be enough for us to reach, you refueled normally or on kilograms considered?" According to the representative of The Fuel Matrix, the innovation will also allow airlines to distribute more evenly the weight of passengers on the plane. Representatives of a startup told The Independent that they already discuss use of technology with a number of the British airports. However, about the status of negotiations it is not reported so all this can be the usual PR course. To add BFM.ru to your sources of news?
