10 Ways to Overcome Your Fear of Flying

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. Not all fears of flying are created equal; some people are afraid of enclosed spaces, alarming noises, heights, crashes, crowds, lack of control, or terrorism.

The fear of flying can be difficult to shake, despite airplanes being the second safest mode of mass transportation in the world.

The main culprits are the large number of people in extra close quarters and the low cabin humidity on-board your flight.
