Yes, this is Virgin Balloon Flights and if you’re looking for a hot air balloon ride with Bailey Balloons, you have come to the right place!

As the premier operator of hot air balloon rides in the South West and beyond, Virgin Balloon Flights is delighted to take you up, up and away.

Our big red balloons flew alongside Bailey Balloons in Bristol, Bath and South Wales for decades and in January 2023, we also took over their big passenger balloon service when the company's owners retired.

They chose Virgin Balloon Flights to take on their passengers due to our excellent reputation and impeccably high standard of service, with more than 28 years of taking you up, up and away under our ballooning belts.

Starting from just £169 per person, we have more than 100 launch sites to choose from across the UK - almost 10x that of any other operator and the only company to operate nationwide.

Why Did Bailey Balloons Choose Virgin Balloon Flights?

Our iconic red Virgin hot air balloons have flown alongside Bailey Balloons across the South West for many years now, even sharing most of the same launch sites.

Several pilots and crew from Bailey Balloons have also chosen to join the Virgin Balloon Flights team in the South East, where they will fly alongside our existing highly skilled passenger balloonists to bring you the very best airborne adventure.

Virgin brings the same high quality, personalised balloon flight experience, with a Prosecco toast on landing, some of the best pilots in the world and more launch sites than anybody else not just in the South West, but across the whole country.
