Balloon flight schedules, availability & booking

 

To request a particular flight, you should either hold an Alba Ballooning voucher (see Flight Vouchers) or an affiliated Agency voucher (please have reference numbers to hand) else you will be automatically directed to purchase a flight voucher as part of the flight booking procedure. To proceed with a flight request, please click on the button next to the flight you wish to book and follow the instructions or you can of course telephone us (office hours) on 01875 830709 or email us at info@albaballooning.co.uk.

If you have an Agency  (e.g. Balloons over Britain, Red Letter Days, Buy a Gift, Into The Blue, Attraction World etc.) voucher and have YET to register it with Alba Ballooning, you can do this by proceeding with a flight request or, if you are not yet ready to book a flight date, use our Registration Form or call us (office hours) on 01875 830709.

 

Please note that the stated meeting times are approximate (+/- 15 mins) and the actual meeting time will be confirmed upon weather check-in. 'yes' for 'Places available?' means that there are at least three places available, 'two' means just two places available and 'one' means just one place available (weight restriction may apply on all).

 

'cancelled' indicates that the flight has been cancelled due to unsuitable weather conditions. Passengers should rebook another flight as quickly as possible. We will try to provide weather cancellation notice as early as possible for passengers but DO NOT assume that a flight is going ahead if there is no 'cancelled' stated. ALWAYS call the Office to check.
