You Want Value For Money, Don’t You?

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!

A Family Business, Established For More Than 25 Years!

We’re a family business, offering that extra personalised feeling throughout your experience. If you call our office you are as likely to speak to one of our pilots as you are to one of our reservation girls! 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 25 years!

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

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

Similarly, all of our air crew are CAA licensed commercial pilots, who must pass a rigorous flight test with CAA examiners on a yearly basis – as well as complete an annual in-depth fire-fighting and first aid course. Who knew so much was involved!

More Flights, More Often, More Fun!

We’ve made more flights, and carried more passengers 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, and the…well, you get the picture by now!

Flights All Year Round, Right Through Winter

Many operators close up through the hard winter months, but not us! We fly all year round. Some of the most breath-taking views can be had on a crisp January morning – the white blanketed fields, the peaceful little villages, and the faint smell of mulled wine on the breeze – or maybe that’s just our imagination! If you want to fly on Boxing Day or New Years Eve, no problem at all. Only Broadland Balloons offers this service in East Anglia!
