If you have never experienced the beauty of flying, then this is definitely something that needs to be added to your bucket list! Flying isn’t only one of the most beautiful ways to travel, but it remains one of the best ways to travel for a number of reasons.
We have all heard the horror stories and felt the shivers creep up our arms as we hear about the devastations in the wake of a plane crash. What we fail to think about, is how many flights safely made it to their destination. Essentially, we are hearing about the exceptions and not the rules. Air traffic control, rigorous training and state-of-the-art technology all contribute to your safety.
The amount of flights that will take place annually in 2019 is estimated to reach 39.8 million. When you compare that to the amount of plane crash reports, it becomes clear why you are statistically more likely to die on the way to the airport.
It’s Fast, Really Fast
It has been reported that the average commercial airliner can reach speeds of up to 926 kilometres per hour. Essentially, a plane can get you to a domestic destination in two hours, whereas a car would have taken roughly more than six times that amount of time (and that’s if we presume the route is straight). Flying allows you to have more time at your destination which means you’ll have more time for leisure, with loved ones or to take care of business endeavours.
The Only Way to Access Some Places
For a variety of locations, the versatility and manoeuvrable capabilities of a plane as well as the paths that they travel through in the air, make it the only way to actually get to some locations. It is also one of the fastest and more accessible methods of travelling internationally and cross-continentally.
