And they’re off...The Virgin Balloon Flights flying season began on the 1st of March and we are revving up the burners to give excited passengers the experience of a lifetime until late October (flying season may vary in some areas). Flying from over one hundred wonderful launch sites in England, Scotland and Wales, our pilots are keen to keep the sunshine out for both morning and evening flights no less than 7 days a week. Want to buy a ticket as a gift? No problem; although the flying season runs from March – October, every lovely ticket has a 12 month validity period, just make sure the recipient gives our Telford based call centre a buzz within 3 months of the ticket start date of this gorgeous gift.
