The ride, which takes about 45 minutes to one hour, will take passengers from Putrajaya to Cyberjaya, which will be the landing spot.

Piloted by seasoned FAA-certified hot air air balloon pilots who have been flying hot air balloons across the world and in Putrajaya Hot Air Balloon Fiesta, passengers basically need not worry about anything but simply look forward to an awesome experience.

One of the pilots is Captain Filip Audenaert from Belgium, who has been flying hot air balloon for the past 20 years.

On the ride, passengers will see the beautiful view of Putrajaya and Cyberjaya. If the day is particularly clear, Twin Towers, KL Tower, Genting Highland and the KLIA twin airports will also be visible.

Just bring your cameras and GoPros to record the memorable experience.

Following the flight, passengers will be picked up at the landing spot, given a refreshing cold towels, bottles of mineral water and the traditional, post-flight celebratory balloon fliers’ toast.

To top the wonderful experience, passengers will be ferried to Cyberview Resort and Spa Hotel in Putrajaya for a buffet breakfast, and at the same time, be presented with a Certificate of Participation.
