British Airways’ popular Flying with Confidence course will go digital for the first time in October. The course is usually organised in a classroom format, followed by a short flight the following day.

However, it will now be offered as a live interactive webinar, providing in-depth information to attendees regarding how an aircraft flies, why turbulence is uncomfortable but not dangerous and simple breathing techniques to use to manage anxiety.

They will also cover all the safety measures put in place by British Airways both on the ground and in the air.

British Airways Captain Steve Allright, who runs the course, said:

“We are delighted to offer this popular course as a live, interactive webinar, to give more people than ever the chance to sign up and overcome their fear of flying from home, wherever they are in the world.

“Safety is at the heart of everything we do at British Airways. There will inevitably be some further worries and questions around the pandemic, so it’s more important than ever that we share with attendees not just the technical aspects of flying, but also the range of safety precautions we are taking, to give them the peace of mind and ensure they have a safe and enjoyable flying experience next time they fly with us.”

The live webinar runs from 1000 – 1500 on Saturday, October 10 and costs £125/₹11,727. Click here for more information.
