For the first time in the history of the Europeans, an island will host the organisation of an European Balloon Championships. This privilege has been achieved by the island of Majorca, thanks to an unbeatable project that has great institutional and popular support which, together with an impressive training and competition flight areas, makes Majorca an unbeatable venue.
More than 100 balloons, 85 teams and 600 participants with more than 25 different nationalities will meet at the XXI FAI European Balloon Championships.
