Flights

Butterfly Balloon flights are a true pleasure. We have no time constraints however; you may have tours scheduled so we anticipate flying for an hour, sometimes a little more. We will collect you from your hotel around sunrise (it really is the best time of the day) for the Butterfly Flight and the Beyond Flight, 30 minutes later for the Bright Flight, and take you to the home of Butterfly Balloons in Goreme. You will be offered a light breakfast while our pilots check the weather conditions and decide on the best launch site for the preferred flight path.

Once at the launch site there will be a full safety briefing and you will have first hand experience of the balloon inflation. The crew will help you into the basket and when everyone is happy and comfortable, the moment you have dreamt of...up, up and away!

Below you, a unique landscape, a combination of natural beauty and a deep and complex history. From the balloon you will see it, feel it and fall in love with it.

At the end of a fantastic Butterfly Balloon flight we will celebrate the experience with champagne, shared stories and friendship. Before we return to your hotel, passengers each receive a personalised commemorative flight certificate and our sincere thanks for sharing the best part of our day.

“When you witness the freedom and beauty of a butterfly, make a wish and realise that you may have been touched by an angel.”

Butterfly Flight

(140 Euro per person, 10 Euro discount on cash payment)
 

We don't use the term standard for this flight as it offers way more than a standard flight in Cappadocia.

Duration is minimum one hour and then some… and our pilots do their utmost to make it one of the most memorable hours of your life. From your pick-up at the hotel through to drop-off, time equals approximately three hours; depending on your hotel's location and the time of year, you will usually be back before 9am and will comfortably be able to join a daily excursion.

Double T (TT) BasketNumbers of people in the basket ranges from 12 to 16 depending on the balloon size. Our baskets are Double-T, which means divided into 5 compartments. The central one is for the pilot and the tanks whilst the four corner compartments are for passengers, so even in our largest balloon there will not be more than 5 in a compartment. We respect our guests’ personal space and believe in leg-room for greatest comfort.

Transfers with minibuses are included to the flight price. We will pick you up around half an hour before sunrise at your hotel and return you after the flight.

Insurance covers both the flight and ground handling and is included. Our passengers, pilots and third parties are covered by our policy for up to 40 Million Euro. We often receive requests from tour operators for the insurance details so have put our policy issued by Eureko BV click here to see.

 

Breakfast is served at our office before take-off. You can have filter coffee or tea with a selection of pastries and fruit.

Champagne Celebration is very serious in ballooning :)Champagne (chilled) is the most important detail of completing a balloon flight for pilots and Mike takes it more seriously than any other pilot we know. So we serve the best champagne after each flight with a selection of cakes. Champagne is actually a ballooning tradition; since the Montgolfier brothers made the first flight in 1873 and celebrated a successful landing with champagne. During winter, we also serve mulled wine as the ambient temperature is usually below zero!

Certificates are given as commemorative gifts. Although your pilot might claim that you are licensed to fly with them, don't take it seriously! It's just the side effect of the champagne...

Children can fly with their parents and will get 50% discount between 6 and 12 years old. Unfortunately we can not accept younger children as they can get a little bored and uncomfortable due to having to stand for an hour plus in the same place.

Payment: You can pay the flight fee in cash at our office in many currencies including Euro, Turkish Lira and US Dollar.

Butterfly BEYOND Flight

(215 Euro per person, 15 Euro cash discount)

We do not operate the Beyond Flight from 01st November to 31st March due to unsuitable weather conditions 

So what's the difference between  Butterfly Flight and Butterfly BEYOND Flight? 

To begin with, the Beyond flight includes everything that a Butterfly Flights offers...

and more; you will be airborne for 1.5 to 2 hours. With the Beyond option there will be a maximum of 3 people in your compartment therefore, in total, not more than 12 passengers. This ensures that you have a freedom of space for viewing and photographing the breath-taking vista of Cappadocia. Normally the Beyond flight is operated by our Chief Pilot Mike Green, and he will take off far from the other balloons and finish the flight way beyond.

Even though the flight path completely depends on the wind conditions of the day, Mike's experience usually ensures that you see twice more than on any other balloon flight.

Invariably there are longer landing parties with Beyond flights with even more champagne. Also given on a Beyond flight; a Butterfly Balloon shaped, limited edition pin as a memory of your Beyond flight
