Virgin Atlantic’s Flying Without Fear gets push from Urban Airship

Virgin Atlantic announced their Flying Without Fear (iTunes link) iPhone/iPod touch app this past Monday, and Urban Airship was happy to work with the folks at Mental Workout, the co-developers of the app, to integrate push notifications via our easy-to-use APIs.

A fear of flying can range from anxiety at take-off to a complete inability to board an aircraft. The Flying Without Fear app is based on the industry leading course that has already helped thousands overcome their fear of flying.

“Implementing Urban Airship’s push notification service was really easy and the development team was great to work with. We will definitely be using them for future apps”, said Mickey Beyer-Clausen, Founder and CEO of Mental Workout.

The Flying Without Fear app uses push notifications to remind users to do daily tasks to prepare for their next flight.
