The terrorist acts of September 11th, 2001, affected people’s fears of and demand for flying. This paper presents the first set of empirical results of the effects of September 11th on flying behaviour. This paper Women, the less-educated and Americans were most likely to have stopped flying around 9/11. Significant differences exist between Westerner and European reactions to September 11th, with Europeans (Westerners) being alarmed (reassured) by their experiences of relatively low-risk (medium-risk) incidents. Westerners also appear to be most affected by the experiences of friends and families.
