easyJet has this week announced the return of their fear of flying course in 2024, in a bid to help nervous passengers through the stages of flight.
Named the Fearless Flyer course, such experiences will take place across five airports in the UK starting from January 27.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
easyJet Brings Back Fear of Flying Course in 2024…
Since 2012, easyJet has helped out over 12,000 phobics who have a fear of flying with a 95% success rate across the program.
The course is divided into three parts:
- A virtual ground course, where top phobia expert Lawrence Leyton and a senior easyJet captain will explain the unfamiliar sounds and sensations customers feel onboard an aircraft and teach them a unique set of mind techniques to manage their nerves. This session lasts approximately two and a half hours.
- A pre-flight one-hour ‘Meet the Team’ online Zoom session, where participants will be walked through the airport experience and what to expect. There will also be a participant Q&A session where phobia expert Lawrence Leyton and an easyJet pilot will answer any last-minute questions.
- And lastly, a special one-hour experience flight from the course airport, where customers put their new skills to the test whilst listening to a live commentary of the flight from the Fearless Flyer team.
Mark Wein, easyJet’s Fearless Flyer Course Director, commented saying the following on this:
“Around one in six people have a fear of flying, stopping many from travelling abroad on holiday, visiting friends and family or even flying for work, so why wait to join so many who have already overcome their fears through our renowned Fearless Flyer course?”
“We’re excited to help many more people get flying fearlessly on our courses over the coming months – the results are truly life-changing.”
All eyes will be on how this course goes for easyJet as well as for those who have a fear of flying as well.
