Useful Tips, Do's and Dont's, and Important Information:
They're licensed by the General Civil Aviation Authority (Air Operator’s Certificate AT024) and all balloons undergo a strict maintenance programme involving regular tests. You are in expert hands!
The Hot Air Balloon takes off from a desert oasis, north of Al Ain. That's about an hour’s drive from Abu Dhabi & Dubai.
Transfers are provided from any major hotel in Dubai or Abu Dhabi. For other locations, transfers are from central meeting points. Dubai: Dubai Festival City, in front of Plug-ins store, (open air car park). Abu Dhabi: Carrefour, on Old Airport Road, (open air car park)
Nothing can compare to the breathtaking views and incredible desertscapes, not even rising early in the morning before sunrise.
This is also the best time for flying as the cool and serene ambience adds to the experience.
The actual flight lasts one hour, but the entire adventure right from your pick-up to drop-off could stretch around 5 hours.
Wear comfortable loose clothing. In the winter months, it is advisable to carry a light jacket or cardigan.
Climbing in and out of the basket, would make clothing like skirts come in the way. Trousers are best.
A sun hat, cap and dark sun-glasses are advised.
Wear comfortable foot-wear like sneakers or shoes. High-heeled sandals are avoidable.
There is limited access to rest-rooms for the entire 5 hours, so avoid drinking too much liquid.
The company tries it's best to be in the air at sunrise, but this cannot always be guaranteed.
