HOW HOT AIR BALLOONS ARE USED



Balloons are used for a variety of different reasons such as pleasure rides, business advertisements, sports and some people even choose to get married on board them! In this section we will look at all the various uses.

COMMERCIAL & LEISURE

The main use of a hot air balloon is for commercial flights, for the public to book a flight and go up for the day.

Some companies decide to take out their employees on large corporate balloon trips as a whole day out.

PROMOTION & ADVERTISING

Some companies choose to use hot air balloons as a means of advertising their products, so will have a 'Special Shape' balloon envelope made or will simply advertise on the side of a typical hot air balloon envelope.

Ballooning is a popular sport these days and is growing all the time, from competitions in smaller races at local balloon festivals through to larger national and international events.

WEDDINGS

Perhaps the most romantic use for a hot air balloon is weddings, when a couple decide to actually get married on board the balloon. While a hot air balloon wedding may be a strange concept to some, it has proved to be a popular option for many couples.
