easyJet nervous flyers courses are taking off. It has six new Fearless Flyer courses designed to help nervous travellers across Britain overcome their fears – including their first ever course in Northern Ireland.

From spring 2014 the ‘Fearless flyer’ courses, which cost £189 per person will return to Manchester, Bristol, Gatwick, Stansted and Luton airports andBelfast International.. The two-part programme is led by top phobia expert Lawrence Leyton, from Channel 4’s “Fear of Flying”, and a senior easyJet pilot. Together they explain how an aircraft works, dispel myths and misconceptions and help participants manage their phobia.

The next day participants put theory into practice by travelling onboard an easyJet plane. The flight has a dedicated crew with the added benefit of an additional captain in the cabin giving a full commentary for the entire journey.

easyJet boasts a 95% success record and Peter Duffy, easyJet’s Customer Director commented:”We’re extremely pleased to be partnering with Lawrence and the team for a further series of Fearless Flyer courses. The techniques and advice the participants receive genuinely work for all levels of nervousness. From those who are extreme phobics and petrified of setting foot on a plane to passengers who experience general anxiety or need reassurance about the mechanics of flying. We know that the course make a real difference and enables passengers to overcome their phobia.”

Mark Wein, Director of FOF Events commented:”We’re delighted to be working with easyJet on the highly successful Fearless Flyer project. As a former phobic myself, I appreciate more than most how debilitating a fear of flying can be and the anxiety that it can cause. That’s why we’ve designed the course in such a way to ensure that the process to becoming a fearless flyer is totally stress free and also highly entertaining.”

easyJet’s Fearless Flyer course costs just £189 including the Experience flight and participants can invite a companion with them on the flight if they wish for an additional £69.
