Virgin Balloon Flights has launched a new range of short haul flights to more than 20 European destinations.
Departing from the ballooning company’s usual 100+ locations across England, Scotland and Wales, flights will last approximately an hour, depending on destination and wind speeds. New departure locations have also been revealed at Heathrow, Gatwick and Manchester Airports, allowing European customers easy and scenic connections to Virgin Atlantic’s long haul destinations.
Chief Pilot and CEO Kenneth Karlstrom says he hopes it will “add to the incredible service Virgin Atlantic is already offering to long-haul passengers”.
The Virgin Balloons flight includes a pilot briefing, a Champagne toast, in-flight entertainment in the form of scenic landscape views and duty-free shopping.
To launch this new exciting way to fly abroad, Virgin Balloons are offering weekday morning flights from as little as £99pp, which you can book now via the Virgin Balloon Flights website.
“We’ve been taking passengers on hot air balloon flights in the UK for over 21 years now,” Kenneth added. “We felt like now was the perfect time to branch out and launch this new European flight service. Not only is the experience serene and peaceful, it’s also a convenient way to commute as there are no airport queues and with our 100+ launch sites, passengers don’t have to travel far to hop on their flight.
“I’m proud of my experienced team who have put in a lot of time and effort to make our dream of flying across to Europe a reality.”
