This question already has an answer here:
My fiance is very scared of flying, and the constant media attention given to plane crashes doesn't help her phobia at all. In fact, the recent EgyptAir plane crash has made her attempt to swear off flying from her life altogether. Obviously it's hard to live without flying nowadays. It's just too convenient to abandon.
What can I do to encourage her and tell her that flying is safe and we shouldn't give up on it just because of the very occasional plane crash?
