Virgin Balloon Flights staff are back in the office today after a lovely (and frantic?) festive break. We don’t know about you, but it feels like we need another holiday to recover. So to get us in the New Year spirit and kick the January blues, we thought we’d share our top 5 resolutions for 2014.

Venture out and about

Enough sofa slumping – recycle that copy of the Radio Times, put down the selection box and say hello to 2014. New Year means we’re only a couple of months away from flying season, and this year is set to be a cracker. To all of you who’ve vowed to hit the gym this month and blow away those Christmas cobwebs, Virgin Balloon Flights salute you. We can’t wait to get active ourselves and see what adventures await our passengers and pilots.

Over to you. Is a Virgin Balloon Flight on your list of resolutions? New Year signals a fresh start, so there’s no better time to plan something you’ve always wanted to do.

Get a little green-fingered

Hoping to build on our successes last year, 2014 promises to be a big year for the Love our Landscape campaign. Virgin Balloon Flights will continue to raise funds for nationwide projects which aim to protect and preserve our wonderful countryside. Keep an eye on the Mile High Blog for updates on how we’re working towards our campaign targets. Take a look at the Love our Landscape website for more information on how to do your bit.

Discover a new country

A New Year brings new possibilities and broadened horizons. Are you planning to learn a new language or experience a different culture? Stick with Virgin Balloon Flights for more news and photographs from our sister company in Tuscany. It’s hard to beat our flights over Britain, but flights in Tuscany boast a healthy dose of that irresistible Mediterranean sunshine.

Celebrate good times

Who said resolutions had to be a chore? Making memories is our thing and 2014 marks a big birthday for Virgin Balloon Flights. We’re 20 this year! Get ready to join our year-long party as we vow to celebrate two decades in business. A diary of anniversary events and projects will soon be live on the website so keep an eye out.

Share and share alike

As we head into 2014, we’re going to make it our mission to share lots of exciting things about the Virgin Balloon Flights experience. We’re already big on social media but this year we promise to open our flaps and show you how we get things off the ground. Keep an eye on all our social media channels for the latest developments at HQ and in the air. 2014 promises to be a golden year, are you coming along for the ride?

Happy New Year to all our staff, pilots and passengers.
