South West Private Balloon Flights During Covid-19

17th September 2020    News

It has been a difficult time for us all of late, as interaction with others has been severely restricted due to the coronavirus pandemic. Whilst we are not able to offer our customers group balloon flights at the moment, we are able to offer South West private balloon flights. In this article, we focus on the different types of exclusive balloon flights that we offer and the additional perks that come with a private Aerosaurus Balloons flight.

Unforgettable South West Private Balloon Flights

Sharing the unbelievable experience of a hot air balloon ride with your chosen company is truly something special. Whilst some customers enjoy sharing the skies with new people during our group flights, others have their hearts set on enjoying the delights of a balloon flight with those closest to them. Memories can be made from unique perspectives as our balloon basket goes upwards with your family, partner or friends by your side. 

At Aerosaurus Balloons, we have a number of different sized balloons, which means we can offer flyers a selection of options when it comes to South West Balloon Rides. We go above and beyond to make sure your balloon flight is a special occasion, accounting for nervous passengers where necessary and relaying our knowledge of the areas we fly over.

Types of Exclusive Balloon Flights During Covid-19

We are offering two types of private balloon flights at the moment, due to restrictions that have been put in place following the covid-19 pandemic. Here is a breakdown of the two types of exclusive rides, which are available to passengers at this moment in time:

Small Private Balloon Hire For Two

Fly high above any of our specified flight locations in one of our small balloons. Our small private hot air balloon hire option is ideal for two people, especially if:

  • You and a family member would like to spend some quality time taking in some unrivalled scenery.
  • You and a friend would like to create a new bonding memory. 

The small private balloon hire option for two is perfect for any of these purposes. There are two types of private balloon flights for two that we offer at Aerosaurus Balloons:

  • Exclusive for 2 Weekday – £350 per person.

  • A detailed and highly informative passenger information pack.
  • Complimentary champagne or soft drink upon arrival.

A Comment On Group Balloon Flights

With regards to shared balloon rides, we are still selling flight vouchers for our larger passenger balloons. However, rather than the vouchers being valid for 12 months from the date of purchase, they will be valid for a year from when we resume flying in the larger balloons.

A shared balloon ride can take up to 16 passengers in a large basket, which is divided into 5 compartments. The pilot is in the middle compartment while the remaining 4 sections comfortably accommodate 4 people in each and are positioned around the outer edge, allowing everyone a great view of the stunning scenery.
