LONDON, 2015-12-30 — /Travel PR News/ — easyJet, Europe’s leading airline, has announced the dates of nine new Fearless Flyer courses for Spring 2016, with further courses also being scheduled for the Autumn.
The two-day courses will take place throughout the UK including Belfast, Bristol, Gatwick, Glasgow, Manchester and Newcastle, and are suitable for anyone with a fear of flying – whether they experience general anxiety or an extreme phobia.
Between the end of February and the middle of June 2016 easyJet expects to help around 1,000 nervous flyers to overcome their fears.
During the first day of the course attendees are taught a variety of proven mind techniques from top phobia expert Lawrence Leyton. Attendees will also learn about the sounds and sensations experienced when flying on an aircraft from a senior easyJet Captain who also dispels common flying myths.
The following day attendees are taken on a one hour dedicated easyJet experience flight where they put their new skills to the test whilst listening to a live commentary of the flight from the Fearless Flyer team.
It is one of the best priced aerophobia courses in the UK at just £189 per person. Participants can also invite a companion to join them on the flight if they wish for just £69. Spaces on all of the courses can be booked at www.fearlessflyer.easyjet.com.
Peter Duffy, easyJet’s Group Commercial Director, said:
“We’re really pleased to be announcing a new set of Fearless Flyer course dates for the beginning of 2016. It is a particularly great opportunity for those planning their new year resolutions to sign up and conquer their fears.
“We’ve already helped thousands of people to overcome their fear of flying and we’re looking forward to helping even more next year.”
Mark Wein, easyJet’s Fearless Flyer Course Director, commented:
“More than 95% of people who take part in our course successfully take to the skies fearlessly and we receive emails from many of our past participants who have since travelled the world. It’s a life changing course and the most common thing we hear from our fearless flyers is that they wish they had taken the course sooner.
“We’ve helped a variety of people – from those who have never flown before to those who think of every excuse under the sun not to fly – no matter the reason behind the fear we’re confident we can help.”
