Ignite your brand with a hot air balloon
At Lighter Than Air (LTA) we specialise in the design, manufacture and operation of advertising hot air balloons and airships on a local, national and international basis. We offer a full and bespoke graphic design, production and PR package to complement your aerial marketing programme, and pride ourselves on providing a personal service.
With nearly 30 years experience gained in over 35 countries your brand will be in safe hands.
Design & Manufacture
There are virtually no limits to your balloon design... We use computer-aided design and modular manufacturing techniques, allowing your hot air balloon to replicate any product or logo, from a can of drink to a giant motorbike. We can even digitally print your balloon giving a photo quality finish.
From concept to completion, LTA will manage the design and manufacture process on your behalf. We work with leading hot air balloon manufacturers using the latest techniques to ensure your balloon looks amazing and lasts for years to come.
LTA will provide you with an experienced commercial pilot and crew, who will work with you to provide a full flight plan, which will enhance your existing advertising campaign. We organise the booking and paperwork of the events you want to take part in, as well as liaising with the Civil Aviation Authority.
LTA also arranges the transportation, storage and maintenance of your new hot air balloon, so all you have to do is sit back and enjoy as your balloon takes flight.
Hot air balloons make advertising into an event. Private launches will draw crowds, with large ballooning events drawing thousands of members of the public along with press and media crews.
At LTA, we provide a comprehensive PR service to ensure your hot air balloon gets the attention it deserves. We liaise with both local and national press, to achieve full press coverage on your balloon. We can also create opportunities to entice media to your launch - for example, World Record attempts and VIP or celebrity flights.
LTA also creates individual press packs for events, packed with exciting facts about your company and hot air balloon.
There's no doubt that a hot air balloon draws immediate attention from members of the public, but studies show that nearly everyone who sees your balloon will remember it and recognise your brand - making a balloon four times more powerful than a billboard.
