Why you are not afraid of heights in a balloon. Most people are afraid of ...

Some good reasons to join us on a Balloon Flight over Bruges:

NO FLIGHT - NO PAY; We know that most of our clients don't live in Bruges or Belgium. That is why we sell you a ticket for a certain flight on a certain day. If weather really hates you and we have to cancel all your reserved flights during your stay in Bruges, we refund you 100%.

Why is it cheaper than in other countries (e.g. France, Switserland, or balloon flights in Kenia or Tanzania)? We do not have a large sales office. Most bookings go through the website. Neither do we need an extensive team of planners to take care of rescheduling your flights in case of cancellation: we simply refund you when your flight could not go ahead because of bad weather

Excellent safety record. The only balloon crew in Belgium that has had safety trainings to meet British CAA standards for commercial balloon operators. As a result, we have had zero injuries in over 2700 flights, flying more than 25,000 people.

Personal service and attention. Flying no big-money passenger ride balloons, we have chosen for the personal approach. Because we love sharing our passion and we feel that flying 20 people in one basket, we are no longer able to talk to everybody face to face about marvellous hot air balloon stories, while guiding them through the flight.So we chose for smaller, easier to handle and quicker to set up, balloons, with the highest safety standards for passenger transport.

Fun - party - interaction - Be Alive !! Every balloon flight is different, different people from different countries join up and at the end, after landing, we celebrate your bravery with champagne, beers, but most of all... we have FUN ! Laughing because of a funny farmer, people greeting us from their back yards, packing up the balloon together,... You will find this the most relaxed way to have a really interactive experience while meeting new people from so many nationalities.

Experience. Our pilots are carefully screened. Only proven safety over many years and a flying experience on many different types of balloons, together with a high minimum of officially logged flying time, make a pilot suitable for our company.

High Quality flights. No quality, no flight. Sometimes "technically" we can fly, there's nothing wrong with the weather except that it may be really misty, or rainy, ... If we feel that we will be giving you a worthless flight, we will tell you honestly and plan you for the next available slot if you can make it, or we'll give you your money back.

Train Ticket refund. If you stay in Brussels, we'll help you get to Bruges by paying your train ticket back up to € 15,00 per person. Usually that is enought to cover the price of the ticket. Just show the ticket to the pilot, and we'll do the rest. We'll also driop you off at the station, in time for the (last) train back! This offer cannot be combined with any other promotions.
