In May 2012 Australia's Easy Access Basket was launched over the Melbourne CBD. Global Ballooning and Burt & Davies jointly funded the design and production of Australia's first accessible commercial passenger balloon. It is an innovative and altruistic joint venture intended to provide happiness to those who would otherwise be denied.

Global Ballooning focus on providing a sustainable ballooning experience, with customer's safety, enjoyment and comfort the main priority.
