Will it be cold up there?
So, dress accordingly to the temperature forecasted. For flights at the end of the day, it would be wise to bring a jacket or a sweater for after the landing.
We have baskets specially equipped with seats for people with reduced mobility. Special arrangements must however be taken ahead of time.
Flights are not recommended for pregnant women, or for anyone who has undergone recent surgery.
People under the influence of alcohol or drugs will not be accept onboard.
How far are we flying?
Am I allowed to help?
What about motion sickness or vertigo?
Most people who are convinced they will suffer from vertigo do not experience it during a flight. Since the beginning of our operations, we never had to land for an airsick passenger.
During the flight, the basket is very stable. Since there is no feeling of motion whatsoever, you will feel very comfortable immediately at take-off.
How high do we fly?
Age and height requirements?
What about our friends who want to tag along without flying?
During the flight, they can follow our chase crew's vehicle with their own vehicle to the landing spot and join us for a traditional ceremony.
What happens if the flight is cancelled due to weather?
Hot Air Ballooning is very much weather sensitive. On very rare occasions we might have to cancel a flight at the last minute, sometimes even just before takeoff. Your safety is paramount and our main concern.
How many people can go in a basket?
However, the true lifting capacity of a hot air balloon is not determined by the number of its passengers but rather by the weight of the maximum payload. That is why we ask for your weight upon reservation.
Is ballooning safe?
Balad'Air has skilled and experienced pilots and ground crew with impeccable safety records so really, no worries, you are in good hands.
