Fearless Flyers Take to the Skies from Belfast International

Over seventy flying phobics will take to the skies next weekend from Belfast International Airport as easyJet’s Fearless Flyer programme returns to the city.

“We’ve been amazed at the response to the programme in Northern Ireland” says Mark Wein the course Director. “Nearly one in six people has a fear of flying, and at last participants can rid themselves of their fear, and quite literally change their lives”.

The course begins next Friday (6th March) at the Europa Hotel Belfast and is hosted by Channel 4’s Lawrence Leyton. Lawrence, together with a senior easyJet captain will take participants through the principles of flying and all the unfamiliar sounds and sensations you feel on board an aircraft. Then they’ll be taught a series of techniques that will help them to manage and ultimately conquer their fear.

On Saturday (7th March) a special one-hour Experience Flight will leave (and return to) Belfast International Airport during which all the lessons learnt the previous day will be put into practice.

Mark Wein from Fearless Flyer adds; “ over 95% of participants who come to the Ground Course also complete the flight with us. Only 5% of our participants have never flown before – the vast majority have developed their fear over many years. We’re delighted to be able to come back to Belfast again and make a real difference to the lives of our Fearless Flyers”.


The cost of the course is £189 including the Experience Flight. Participants may bring a companion with them for an additional £69.

The Experience Flight departs Belfast International at 09.00a.m and will be operated on an easyJet Airbus 319 aircraft.
