We offer exclusive, private and personal Balloon Rides, Corporate Advertising and Special Shape Hot Air Balloons. We own and operate our own balloons, right here in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
We are veterans of the sport and together have over 3000 hours and over 75 years of combined hot air balloon piloting experience – and we have flown all over the world. FIND OUT MORE
No billboard or TV ad can capture and retain an audience the way a hot air balloon can. Ottawa Hot Air has a proven track record of successful aerial advertising campaigns using hot air balloons in Canada, the USA, and around the world. We can help you design, create, build, run and manage the perfect balloon program.
Together with our sister company, Bard Balloons, who builds our special shape balloons, we operate the largest fleet of Special Shape Balloon in the world. Our existing fleet of special shape balloons have been extremely successful and well received and we are fortunate to have been invited to balloon festivals all over the world. Keep watching, as we are constantly adding to our fleet.
The health and safety of our passengers, pilots, ground crew as well as our surrounding landowners (where we land) in our community are our top priority.
Our planed start date for the 2020 flying season is June 1, 2020, but this date may be delayed due to provincial regulations. We will not be opening our booking calendar until we are ready to fly.
Fortunately, we only offer private flights, so risk of exposure is low, and we will be cleaning/disinfecting our equipment between each flight. We are a local business and plan on operating for many years.
Existing customers that did not fly in 2019 can extend the validity of their bookings until Dec 31, 2021 by emailing us directly, so that they can have the flexibility of flying with us whenever is convenient for them.
On behalf of the entire team here at Ottawa Hot Air, we hope you are all and safe and healthy and we thank you for putting your trust in us and for supporting us, the only local balloon passenger ride business in Ottawa, and we look forward to taking you up for your flight a bit later.
The Ottawa Hot Air team
