Brits are more in love with air travel than they have ever been before. With more passengers flying every day and passenger numbers forecast to increase to well over 280 million.
Yet rising fuel prices, a fare price war and the impact of Brexit have sent many airlines to the wall.
So the UK’s biggest airline, easyJet, has to rise to the turbulent times… they’re opening new routes, putting even more new pilots through their paces and launching a new fleet of bigger and better planes. At the heart of their operations are the 4000 pilots who will fly a record 90 million passengers to over 1000 different destinations this year.
“easyJet: Inside the Cockpit” is a returning primetime series which follows the seasoned pilots who have to take on everything from delays to poorly passengers. We follow the high-pressured command course that enables a flight officer to step into the left seat as a Captain. And join the rookie pilots as they take the air for the first time at the controls of a passenger plane.
