So, who’d have thought that a London based builder would determine the meet time for your balloon flight?

William Willett, a London builder, was the man behind the idea for daylight saving time (DST) back in 1916, and since then, we have changed our clocks backwards and forwards on the last Sunday in March and October to ensure we make the most of daylight!

The clocks have now changed, so make sure you double-check your meeting time on your confirmation flight line before embarking on your voyage with Virgin Balloon Flights.

To give you a rough idea, here are the approximate meeting times according to the time of year;

  • Mid-March to end March: 07:00HH & 15:30HH
  • Beginning to mid-April: 07:00HH & 17:00HH
  • Mid-April to mid-May: 06:30HH & 17:30HH
  • Mid-May to end May: 06:00HH & 18:00HH
  • June and July: 06:00HH & 18:30HH
  • Beginning to mid-August: 06:00HH & 18:00HH
  • Mid-August to end August: 06:30HH & 17:30HH
  • Beginning to mid-September: 07:00HH & 17:00HH
  • Mid-September to end September: 07:30HH & 16:30HH
  • October: 08:00HH & 15:00HH
  • November: 07:00HH & 13:30HH
