About Virgin Balloon Flights

A hot air balloon ride with Virgin Balloon Flights is an incredible experience like no other.

With more than 100 launch sites throughout England, Scotland and Wales, our passengers can look forward to First Class Virgin service on a wonderful airborne adventure, the memories of which will last a lifetime.

Hot air ballooning is the oldest and most romantic form of aviation in the world and our beautiful balloon flights capture all the romance and endeavour of an aviation era gone by.

An incredible feeling that time has been suspended as the world drifts quietly by is one our passengers will never forget.

It is a unique and unforgettable gift - no two balloon flights are ever the same.

Our passengers can look forward to:

  • Greeting and passenger registration
  • Full pilot briefing
  • Invitation to assist with the inflation of the balloon prior to take-off
  • Approximately an hour in the air
  • Traditional celebratory toast (well, it would be rude not to!)
  • Personalised certificate signed by Sir Richard Branson and the pilot

Virgin Balloon Flights offers a range of flight vouchers for a 3-4 hour hot air balloon ride experience, which are valid for either 12 or 18 months from purchase.

All our vouchers can be used to book for any of our 100+ locations nationwide.
