About Us

Balaton Ballooning is the first and only internationally run professional hot air balloon company in Hungary. We have more than 30 years of experience in passenger carriage. We have been operating for 14 years in Hungary and also have interests in Italian and Dubai balloon companies.

What is Three-fold Safety?

We are a full time balloon company, not a balloon sport club. Our pilots are not hobby pilots, but some of the most experienced full time commercial balloon pilots in the world. Our two pilots have a combined 7000 hours of flying time.

Our equipment is purchased new, directly from the best balloon manufacturers, not second or third hand. We fly Hungary’s newest, most robust and safest 18 passenger balloon basket. Ours is the only balloon basket is Hungary that is equipped with passenger safety belts. We also carry a transponder on all of our flights, so that the air traffic controllers are aware of where our balloon is in any given moment.

All of our passengers are insured by one of Europe’s largest company,seated in Germany, that specialises in aviation passenger insurance.
