easyJet: Inside the Cockpit Series Premiere Thurs 2 May 2019 on ITV

easyJet is now Britain’s biggest airline, carrying nearly 90 million passengers last year. But in 2019, times have never been tougher.

Staying top in these turbulent times means attracting more passengers, flying to more destinations and training up a new crop of rookie pilots.

easyJet: Inside the Cockpit is a returning primetime series, with unprecedented fixed rig camera access which follows more pilots as they are put through their paces. From cadets taking to the air for the first time at the controls of a passenger plane, to the most experienced pilots landing at Europe’s most demanding airports.

In episode one we meet the pilots who have to battle with delays, deal with a sick passenger and negotiate landing at one of the world’s most challenging airports in the heart of the Alps.

Over a busy two days, Captain Emma Henderson will have to face technical breakdowns, severe turbulence and a medical emergency when a female passenger collapses in her arms.

Meanwhile, Captain Brij Kotecha is flying into Innsbruck and as he approaches the runway through a blanket of cloud, he only has seconds to decide whether to land or abort.

Captain Gaurav Adwaney and Senior First Officer Iris De Kan and are piloting easyJet’s first ever flight on a new route to Aqaba in Jordan. After five and a half hours flying, they will be greeted by a party of local dignitaries – if they can park in the right place.

Inside the Cockpit takes you behind the flight deck door, revealing what a pilot’s life is really like six miles in the air.

Airdate: Thursday 2 May 2019 from 9.00pm-10.00pm on ITV.
