How To Book A Private Flight For Two… Under $1000

The hot thing to do these days is to “go private.” Private jets, Private cars, private chefs, private concerts, private wine tastings, and private hot air balloon rides. It’s not that you don’t enjoy having conversations with random strangers–or catching their colds–it’s just that you want a premium experience.

I first discovered private, luxury experiences when taking my first black car. I had just landed at Laguardia airport, en route to a job interview. As I descended the escalator, I noticed a well-dressed man holding a sign with my name on it. I felt special. He carried my bags, opened the car door, and already knew my destination. In the brand new Lincoln, the driver had moved the front passenger seat forward, ensuring abundant leg room. A bottle of chilled Perrier waited in the cup holder beside me. I thought to myself, “I could get used to this!” Once you go private, it’s hard to go back. It’s similar to drinking a perfectly-aged cabernet or wearing a hand stitched, custom suit from a high-end tailor.

If you have ever flown first class on British Airways, sat front row at a hot concert, or had bottle service at a fancy club, it’s always worth it. With hot air ballooning, the same rule applies. You could get engaged, honor a birthday, celebrate your anniversary, or check off a “bucket list” box by flying in a hot air balloon basket, nudged up closely to 8-14 other passengers. Or you could choose to go private or semi-private.

At Seattle Ballooning, we fly hot air balloons specifically designed for private commercial flights. Our beautifully colored, luxury baskets carry two to four guests, which allow for a customized and specialized flight. If you’re celebrating a special occasion, it should just be the two of you (and the pilot of course).

Hot air ballooning was originally created by the French, so we offer our guests a high class, French ballooning experience– including fresh baked croissants, local jams, delicious cheeses, and champagne. Also in the French style, we open all our bottles with a sword.
