How to Conquer Fear of Flying

Travel anxiety is becoming more and more common in the 21st century world. Fear of flying is one of the most prevalent travel anxieties, with 1 in every 6 adults suffering from “aviophobia.” Surprisingly, even 35 percent of airline crew members – which includes flight attendants and pilots – have some degree of fear of flying.
