Hot air ballooning is weather dependant. We recommend that you book near the start of your
stay in Canterbury so that if the weather is not suitable you have the chance to re-book on another day.
For visitors who do not have their own transport and are staying at central hotels/motels in Christchurch we can provide courtesy transfers. Please note that due to our location and the early nature of ballooning we do not pick up from the whole of Christchurch. If you require a transfer please let us know where you will be staying so we can confirm if we do pick up from there.
Due to our flights being weather dependant we need to be able to contact you the evening prior to the flight to confirm if it is operating and to arrange the meeting time and place. (The times shown on your booking form are estimate only). Please provide contact information at time of booking. If we have been unable to contact you you must call us between 7.30 – 9.00 pm on 0279159472 the night before your flight. Due to the early nature of ballooning we do not take calls after 9.00 pm.
$100 per person cancellation fee applies if you cancel with 48 hours for small groups or within 7 days of flight for large groups. If you cancel within 24 hours of the flight or fail to turn up on the day you forfeit the full fare. Cancellations must be made directly to Ballooning Canterbury. If we cancel the flight due to weather or for safety reasons, a full refund will be given or you can change your booking to another date if space is available.
Because a hot air balloon is a lighter-than-air aircraft, it is limited to the total number of kilograms it can lift. Weight limitations vary according to the outside temperature, humidity, and the number and total weight of the passengers and pilot on board. It is extremely important for flight planning that we have accurate weights, it is a legal requirement that each person must be weighed before the flight.
Please note the maximum weight for each passenger is 130 kg. If you are heavier than this please contact us directly to discuss the options to accommodate you.
Children are welcome and must be accompanied by a paying & consenting adult. The child must be able to see over the edge of the basket. Their height must be a minimum of 1.1 m high. Infants are not permitted. A child is aged 12 years and under.
