eTN Staff Writer  Jun 09, 2009

Sky Waltz, India’s first commercial hot-air balloon operation, is hard at work planning and preparing for a big upcoming tourist season that will help lift Indian tourism to new heights in 2009 and 2010.

After successfully launching their unique and adventurous balloon safaris, with the support of the Indian government, in Jaipur in January 2008, Sky Waltz has since expanded its operations to include Ranthambore and Pushkar. And in October 2009, they will again be taking their operations to more amazing destinations and festivals in Rajasthan, including Udaipur (to start in November), Neemrana Fort, and also the Pushkar Camel Fair.

Support is rapidly growing from both domestic and foreign tour operators, which are keen to include this globally-successful tourist activity into their India itineraries. With highly reputable and successful hot-air balloon operations across the globe, including Africa, Europe, Australia, the USA, and the UK, Sky Waltz is very proud to be bringing such an amazing experience to India.

With safety being Sky Waltz’s number one priority, they have enlisted the help of the world's best consultants and pilots from the USA and the United Kingdom to work closely with the Department of Civil Aviation in order to take the safety standards of its operations to new levels on a global scale. Along with their highly-trained and skilled Indian ground crew and operational staff, Sky Waltz has developed a very strong and successful team that provides not only an amazing once-in-a-lifetime experience, but exceptional quality and service to all its passengers.

Keep an eye out for one of the spectacular Sky Waltz balloons in the Indian skies over the next few years, as they help boost India’s tourism economy.
