EasyJet has announced that it is planning to launch a Fearless Flyer course to help worried passengers overcome their fear of flying.

Travellers with a flight phobia will be able to pay £179 for the course to help them overcome their fears, with the day led by Lawrence Leyton, host of Channel 4 television show Fear of Flying.

A couple of days later, the airline will launch a dedicated short flight from London Luton Airport to allow participants to face their fears - though they will be able to bring along a loved one for moral support for an additional fee.

One in six people are afraid of flying, according to the airline. Some may feel uncomfortable for the duration of their journey, but for others the fear is so severe that it is difficult to get onto an aircraft at all.
