Oriental Ballooning was founded in 2013 and is a syndicate of leading professionals from the hotel and tourism industry.
With the advice of Gone-with-the-Wind ltd. the company purchased brand new balloons from Cameron Balloons, Bristol UK, the world’s largest balloon manufacturer.
All pilots have a commercial UK balloon licence and many years of flying experience. Some of the pilots have lived and worked in Burma for many years and are happy to share their insight knowledge with you during the flight.
Most of our pilots speak at least a couple of foreign languages like French and German but some will also be able to communicate with you in Spanish, Chinese or Japanese.
Oriental Ballooning obtained its AOC (Air operators certificate) in November 2013 and has been offering flights in their boutique 4-12 passenger balloons over Bagan, Mandalay, Inle lake, Pindaya and now for this season Ngapali.
The company employs over 100 local staff who enjoy their job and will do everything to make your experience as comfortable as possible. They are fully employed – also during the off-season – and the company offers them free English lessons to improve their skills and opportunities for the future.
