Bristol Balloon Fiesta has been at the heart of the UK ballooning calendar, since it started on September 7th. 1979. It is the largest annual balloon fiesta in Europe.
Bristol Balloon Fiesta attracts up to 450,000 spectators/consumers and media from around the world, so it is a great place to promote your corporate brand. ABC has great relationships with all of the major broadcasters and we fly TV crews throughout the 4 days of the Fiesta.

ABC has 4 unbranded balloons which can be sponsored for the Fiesta by individuals or corporate brands - please use the Contact Us link for more details.
Bristol Balloon Fiesta is a spectacular place to fly from and ABC Flights Ltd. offers balloon flights to the public and a chance to fly in a standard shape balloon, with a maximum of four passengers + Pilot, so you feel part of the flight – not just another passenger in a ‘flying bus’!
Balloon flights launch from sites in Bristol and Bath and we also fly passengers from the Bristol Balloon Fiesta held at Ashton Court each August.
You can even charter your own balloon for the ultimate ‘Exclusive Flight’ for just 2 people at Bristol Balloon Fiesta.
Our un-branded balloons are also used to fly TV and film crews for news programmes and documentaries – ABC holds Declared Balloon Operator - UK.DBO.212 - status with the UK CAA and we are one of the few BBC Aerial Filming Approved Contractors in the UK.
