Be it for business trips, vacations, or visiting family and friends who live far away – flying is becoming an increasingly important part of life these days. For most people, it’s a delight – but for some it can be like torture.
Approximately one-third of people feel uncomfortable on board an airplane, and around 15 percent suffer from a genuine fear of flying. People who are afraid to fly board an airplane under extreme stress, feel helpless during the flight, and suffer from cold sweats, racing pulse, shortness of breath, nausea, dizziness, and debilitating claustrophobia. All of that can even lead them to avoiding flying entirely.
