COVID-19 UDPATE: April 16, 2021
Your safety, as well as the health of our pilots, ground crew and our surrounding landowners (where we land) is crucial to us, as safety has always been our number one priority.
We had a good 2020 flying season, and originally planned to start flying passengers starting June 1, 2021.
Due to new provincial restrictions announced today in Ontario, lasting until at least May 20, 2021, and since our pilots and crew have not been able to complete required recurrency flights and training, our opening date has now been pushed back to July 17, 2021.
To prioritize existing customers, we are not accepting new bookings.
We plan to start flying existing customers starting July 17, 2021, but our booking calendar will remained closed until we are ready to fly. For these existing customers, please contact us after July 4, 2020.
Existing customers that did not fly in 2020 or 2021 can extend the validity of their bookings until Dec 31, 2022 by emailing us directly, to have the flexibility of flying with us whenever is convenient for them.
We are the only locally owned balloon ride business in Ottawa and plan on operating for many years.
On behalf of the entire team here at Ottawa Hot Air, we hope you are safe and healthy, and we thank you for putting your trust in us and for supporting us and we look forward to taking you up for your flight a bit later.
The Ottawa Hot Air team
