Airline says overweight tourists must pay for extra seat to fly over Nazca Lines

The tourist airline Aeroparacas has sent out the following communique:

Attention: Travel Agents

Aeroparacas six-seat CessnaI am writing to inform you that any passenger whose weight exceeds of 95 kilos (209 pounds) will have to pay the full 100% fare for another seat. This is because the aircraft have stipulated weight limits, and we are already having problems with this situation, due to passengers exceeding the weight. This rule is for safety, given that a plane flying over its carrying capacity can result in an accident. This is regulated by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation, according to the weight and balance of the plane as indicated ​​by the manufacturer.
