Passenger Weights

1. Unless otherwise specified by Vortex Air, a passenger manifest including individual passenger weights must be supplied by the charterer prior to the flight. All aircraft have operating weight limitations and this enables the flight crew to ensure the aircraft is loaded within these limitations and appropriate fuel loads are carried. This is particularly important for aircraft with less than 18 seats.


2. Standard adult passenger weights are 86kg for males and 71 kg for females. Particularly if individual weights average heavy than these standard weights, passenger numbers or baggage may have to be reduced.


3. If accurate passenger weights are not supplied prior to the flight, passengers or baggage may have to be left behind at the flight crew’s discretion.
