Luxor Balloons are flying again

The new rules for hot air balloons in Luxor

The people at Hod Hod Soliman have very kindly explained the new rules for balloons in Luxor as applied by themselves. I suggest if you are flying with another company you find out how they are applying the rules.
Well there is basically no great change, except that there is now a safety briefing approved by the Egyptian Civil Aviation Authority in use which passengers are required to sign to show that they have understood the need for the briefing and the steps that they can take to help to ensure a comfortable and safe flight for themselves and other passengers.
It is quite possible that some companies may require a waiver - Hod-Hod Soliman does not.
The insurance situation remains unchanged from the position before the tragic accident in the case of Hod-Hod Soliman Balloons
