Flying - Fear of Flying

Hi Capt Lim,

I would like to thank you for your website. I love to fly but am scared of it, but all the information I have read so far makes me feel pretty good. I have a question about flying. With the threat of terrorism and the fact that I am flying to London from Chicago next month, is it safe to fly with all the security in place?

I am worried about the terrorist aspect, and if with these new security measures, can I fly with no worries about terrorism in the air?

Thanks

Steve

Hi Steve,

Your question is quite difficult to answer at the moment because the full security measures as envisaged by the Aviation Authorities worldwide are not fully implemented yet due to many constraints.

I can say that security checks are getting more stringent everywhere in the major Air Terminals but you cannot totally eradicate the risk of terrorism. Treat the air safety aspect as you would treat travel by other modes of transport, like coach or the underground train.

Technically, it is safe to fly anywhere if the security checks are full-proof but can anyone guarantee that? Anyway, I wouldn't worry about that because the chances of terrorist attacks are fairly slim. I think the chances of any threats would be just as great if you take an underground train to anywhere from the London Marble Arch Station if you are a British citizen,.

Hope that will make you feel better.
