Hello! I have 2 gift vouchers for Swiss Central Plateau Flight. is it possible to upgrade it to Balloon Flight from one of our 50 locations all around Switzerland ?Thank you

Sent by Katia Centonze on 10.09.2018

Do you have a ticket number? We will have to check on the value and expiration date. Best is to call our office (8:00 - 12:00) and we will help you.

Hello, We are planning our honeymoon and we will be in Zurich on July 9. It looks like the current schedule does not go that far yet. Do you know where the balloons will take off from that day? Thank you so much!

Hi Julia We have no plan for July 9th 2018 ;-) So now we know your plan, but what about the weather? Do you or will you organize it? From past experiance we have to cancell more than 50 % of our planned flights. What would happen if we can not fly on the requested day? We have to cancel it all? That is why we do not offer "flights on a specific day only" In other words: If you buy a ticket you can reschedule the flight if we have to cancel because of the weather but no money will be returned.

We are around 25 people who would like to stay at a hotel in the mountains. Maybe Giessbach hotel in Brienz in June. One morning we would like to fly with you. My questions: Is it at all possible with that many people? And do you offer transportation from the hotel and back or would we have to arrange that ourselves?

Sent by Marie on 26.01.2018

Hi Marie The number of passengers is no problem, we fly with a few balloons together. But transportation from Brienz to the Region of Berne early in the morning will be the challenge! In June we meet at 5:00 am and here you find our locations: Hope this helps for the moment. regards Hans

Do you have summer sunrise flight from Geneva or Interlaken in June 2017 ?

Sent by Suchita on 27.04.2017

I am sorry, but Interlaken is a "no fly" for balloons. Because of all the mountains around we have no or very few landing areas and Geneva is just too far away.

We are 4 adults We are interested in hot air ballooning, of the Alps, between 7 and 9 March, 2016 We wanted to know which tours do you offer , or route, duration and cost of them. How to do the reservations and what happens if the weather is bad. Where from do you recommend to fly in order to have the best view of the mountains

Sent by SILVANO VLACIC on 14.02.2016

Flying over the Alps is possible, but can NOT be scheduled on a certain date as you plan. Because we have to consider a few very important factors like weatehr on the north and south of the alps and the wind speed and directions we can only see a flight about 2 or 3 days in advance. For this flight you have to plan 1 1/2 days of time (stay over night in Italy before we return) and it wiill cost Euro 2100.- per person. Right now we have our winter break and start flying only at the end of march. You can check out our locations where we fly and our schedule of open flights and available seats here: Those flights are CHF 390.- per person.
