We live in a world where comfort and luxury are a way of life and all of us like to enjoy this as a privilege. For this reason, the majority of the population prefers to travel by air transport these days. It is a mode of transport that is fast, easy, comfortable, and convenient.
I have been travelling by air for more than 10 years now and I know everything related to it by heart. Since my father is a pilot too, I have always been fascinated with how aeroplanes work and why a majority of people prefer this as their primary mode of transport. From security checks to not having to drag around your luggage everywhere you go, flights have indeed made our lives easy.
No matter how old I get, I will always enjoy and appreciate the art of travelling. After all, by air is how all of us can travel and vacation in cities we never thought humanly possible. Sometimes, it is not even about reaching the destination but also about the journey. The journey we embark on by air is not only fun but also memorable. From looking out the window when we are in the sky to enjoy the delicious food and hospitality provided by the staff on air, there is nothing we do not love about aeroplanes!
I am here to discuss some of the many advantages of travelling by air. For those of you who already trust and use this mode of transport, you can read these benefits to reassure yourself that you are making the correct decision. For those of you who hesitate or have second thoughts about taking a trip by air, the advantages mentioned below might just make you rethink your mode of travelling.
Why Travel By Air?
While most of you would disagree with this advantage of travelling by air, air travel is indeed considered to be one of the safest modes of travel. Especially when compared to road trips, air travel is safer. Did you know that studies show that the average odds of dying in a road accident is 1 in 98? On the other hand, the average odds of dying when travelling by air is 1 in 7,178.
For those of you who have not yet travelled by air or who have travelled but feel that the seats are very cramped, try and compare them to other modes of transport.
I have travelled not only by air but also by trains and subways. I feel that trains mean a lot of crowds and not 100% guaranteed hygiene. Driving on road trips too can be very exhausting and it never gives us a chance to relax or enjoy the views fully.
Last but not the least, have you ever felt the rush of taking off into the air and travelling into the clouds? Is it not wholesome and heavenly to look down on the landscapes and the big buildings that seem so small from the air? The reality is that no other mode of transport can offer this excitement and fun.
