Our Packages

Our passengers have told us they really rate First Flight’s customer service and our approach to flying. We run a professional balloon company that is all about quality and personal service, not quantity. Our smaller passenger balloons allow everyone on board to have the best possible views, have fun and enjoy the flight in comfort. When you call us to book or simply enquire, you are talking to the pilot who is going to be flying you, not someone in a call centre. No waiting lists to book in, simply choose your date, let us know and we will keep in contact with weather updates.

We operate a personal booking service to organise your flight date so please call and speak to Nick if you have a specific date in mind. As we only fly in the local area, this allows us to offer good flight availability throughout the year avoiding the need for you to book months in advance.
