AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR OUR PASSENGERS
After many years taking passengers on unforgettable balloon flights, the operators of Ballooning Network Ltd (also trading as Bath Balloons and Bristol Balloons) made the decision to retire and ceased balloon operations in November 2021.
To purchase a hot air balloon ride, please visit our recommended operator, Virgin Balloon Flights.
If you would like to purchase a different type of experience here in the South West, visit WonderDays gift experiences.
Our existing customers with valid flight vouchers for Bath Balloons, Bristol Balloons and Ballooning Network were contacted directly in November 2021 and instructed to contact Virgin Balloon Flights to transfer their experience.
All vouchers had to be transferred to Virgin Balloon Flights before their expiry date and over the past year, this process has been completed. All Ballooning Network vouchers have now expired and no further transfers can be accepted by Virgin Balloon Flights as of 5th November 2022.
The UK’s largest balloon operator, Virgin Balloon Flights is a family run business and highly respected business, which has flown its big red balloons in the South West for many years.
They are keen to preserve Bristol Balloons local heritage wherever possible. Their head pilot in the area, Mark ‘Nobby’ Simmons, has flown in the area for more than 25 years.
Launching from many of the same launch sites we have used, all Virgin pilots down here are truly 'local' and very much looking forward to taking you up, up and away on an unforgettable ballooning adventure.
Ballooning Network has now ceased to operate, you can find a whole range of experience day ideas, including hot
air balloon rides, from our friends over at WonderDays.
While flying experience days will always be top of our list,
there's something for everyone to enjoy from animal experiences, adventure days out and delicious food and drink
Here in the south west, a murder mystery dinner experience is a great choice to enjoy with family and
