LONDON, 2014-7-2 — /Travel PR News/ — easyJet, the UK’s largest airline, has today announced the release of seven new “Fearless Flyer” course dates across the UK to help even more nervous travellers overcome their phobia of flying.
From Autumn 2014 easyJet’s Fearless Flyer course will be run at Gatwick, Belfast, Luton, Edinburgh, Manchester, Bristol and Stansted. The course is one of the best priced aerophobia courses in the UK at just £189 per person.
The courses are hosted by top phobia expert Lawrence Leyton, star of Channel 4’s “Fear of Flying”, and a senior easyJet pilot who together explain how an aircraft works, dispel common flying myths and teach participants a unique set of ‘mind tools’ to manage their fear.
The next day participants travel onboard a special easyJet flight to put the skills they’ve learnt to the test, including a full commentary in the air from a dedicated captain in the cabin.
The new dates come as the airline celebrates helping more than 1,000 people to manage their fear of flying since launching the course in late 2012.
Peter Duffy, easyJet’s Group Commercial Director, commented:
“We’re delighted to launch a new set of dates for the Fearless Flyer courses following its huge success over the past year and a half. The techniques and advice that participants are taught on the course are long-lasting and work for all levels of anxiety and fear – whether you’re a first-time flyer, an extreme phobic or whether you experience general anxiety and apprehension.”
“We know that a fear of flying can really affect your life and stops many from holidaying abroad, visiting family and travelling on business trips. With a 95% success rate on our courses we’re really looking forward to helping more people transform their lives.”
Mark Wein, Director of FOF Events which organise the fearless flyer courses, said:
“Our spring series of Fearless Flyer was a phenomenal success with sell out courses and a near perfect success rate. We’ve therefore added additional dates for the rest of the year to cater for the increase in demand we are now experiencing.
“As a former phobic myself, I know how restrictive a fear of flying can be so I get no greater pleasure than receiving emails from around the world from our Fearless Flyers who are now enjoying exotic holidays, visiting overseas relatives or flying to business meetings without that dreaded fear of the flight.
“We see tears and apprehension coming into the ground courses and beaming smiles getting off the experience flight. The transformation is incredible and is achieved after only three hours in one of our ground courses. So with our next series of courses fast approaching, we’re looking forward to helping our next 1000 Fearless Flyers achieve their goal of flying fearlessly.”
easyJet’s Fearless Flyer course costs just £189 and participants can invite a companion with them on the flight if they wish for just £69. To book a place on one of easyJet’s Fearless Flyer courses please visit fearlessflyer.easyjet.com.
