Blue Islands - Freedom to fly 18 & 19 March

Blue Islands, the leading airline of the Channel Islands, has released more details of its first Freedom to fly course to help passengers who are scared of flying shed their fears with ease.

The next date for the course will be 18 and 19 of this month and will be held at Gurnsey Airport, with two further courses in Jersey on 29 & 30 April and 6 & 7 May.

Blue Islands’ two-day Freedom to Fly courses have had great success combining technical insights from our senior Captains, with behavioural change coaching by specialist Mo Bury and culminate in an experience flight around the islands. 

Rob Veron, CEO Blue Islands said, “Freedom to Fly is totally free, and something we’re proud to offer our island community. Travel is essential when living on an island and we want to play our part in making a difference to the lives of our attendees through the opportunities that travel brings. A fear of flying is surprisingly common, and can have a real impact on those who are affected, whether it’s connecting with friends and family, or required for work travel, it’s an essential part of island life.”

Rob added, “We developed our Freedom to Fly course back in 2017 and have continually developed it since; fine-tuning our proven formula to deliver the best possible environment to help participants successfully overcome their fears and enjoy air travel in greater comfort.  Also, to embrace those where new aversions have perhaps developed during the two-year hiatus of the pandemic.”

One previous attendee, Daren said “I hadn't been on a plane in over 40 years due to a pathological fear of flying… I've been on the Blue Islands Freedom to Fly course culminating in a 20-minute flight around the island. A massive thank you for one of the most amazing experiences ever.”

Another, Sarah, commented, “Thank you so much to the whole team at Blue Islands - you were incredible. It was a truly amazing experience and you have made a difference to so many people’s lives.”

While Adele added: “I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to you for giving me the confidence to fly today! The course has changed my life.”
