5 Ways Airlines Ensure You Have A Safe & Enjoyable Flight

Flying 36,000 ft above ground is a frightful thought, but the airlines are doing everything possible to make it a comfortable and enjoyable trip. If you are afraid of flying, then these five points will reassure you that flying is a safe way to travel.

 

1) Pilot’s Flying Schedule: Flights longer than eight hours require three pilots (one captain and two first officers) to rotate flying duties. Flights longer than 12 hours require four pilots (one captain and three first officers). They usually fly have three-four hour shifts.

 

2) Pilot’s Meal: Each airline pilot flying the aircraft eats a different meal to minimize the risk of all pilots on board being ill.

 

3) Airline Lighting Solution: The reason why the lights are turned out during take-off and landing is for your eyes to adjust to lower levels of light. If there's an emergency and they have to activate the emergency slides, studies have shown that you will be able to see better and therefore be able to evacuate more quickly and safely.

 

4) English Is A Universal Language: All International Airline Pilots speak English to communicate seamlessly with travellers.

 

5) Safety First: The height requirement (4ft 11in and 6ft 3in, or 150cm and 190cm tall) for Flight Attendant is for safety reasons, making sure that all flight attendants can reach overhead safety equipment.

 

These are some of the safety tips you should adhere when flying in the stratosphere.
