You Want Value For Money?

Buying your balloon flight directly from us means that you are getting the best possible value for money.

We are proud to be the sole provider of balloon flights to many other agencies, such as Red Letter Days, Buyagift, Into The Blue and Balloons Over Britain, but by coming direct to us as the experience supplier you are able to secure the best price and service.

All of our flights are celebrated with a chilled glass of Champagne after landing. A tradition that stems from the French history of hot air ballooning, we continue this custom as a way to mark the occasion in style!

Ballooning isn’t something you do every day, so make sure you get the best flight for your money!

Established For More Than 25 Years!

We’re a long-established business, offering that extra degree of service throughout your experience. If you telephone you are as likely to speak to one of our reservations team! If you require detailed information about the process or local knowledge of our launch sites, our expert team has it all! After all, we’ve been doing this for over many years.

Here at Broadland Balloons we all absolutely love ballooning. We were into ballooning as a sport long before it became our livelihood.

Broadland Balloons is a Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) licensed Air Operator (BL027). We are audited by the CAA inspectors annually before our licence is renewed.

All of our air crew are CAA licensed commercial pilots, who must pass a rigorous flight test with CAA examiners on a yearly basis together with a comprehensive medical – in addition to a complete regular in-depth fire-fighting and first aid course. Who knew so much was involved.

More Flights = More Fun!

We’ve made more balloon flights, and carried more people than any other operator in East Anglia. Throughout the years we have made thousands of flights from our stunning venues in Norfolk and Suffolk. This isn’t a new trend either, we were doing this last year, and the year before that.

Long Flight Season

Our flying season runs from March through to the end of October when the weather is best and the ground dry enough to land on and retrieve our equipment from. We do exclusives (2 Passengers) during the rest of the winter months on a more ad hoc basis. We cannot emphasis enough that ballooning is weather dependent. There are strict criteria for a safe balloon flight and we must adhere to them in order to ensure customer safety.
