Hello, Air travel is basically the safest way to travel over a long distance. Airports have a ton of security measures to prevent any sort of bad stuff. I have taken several trips by airplane and I got nervous each time because of the air pressure made my ears pop--chewing gum helps with this and I didn't like the loud noise from the engines when we were taking off but after a few minutes in the air--I was fine. Also realize planes will not take off when the weather is bad so try to focus on the shopping festival and I hope you enjoy it.
