GTDC clear doubts on hot air balloons, assures safety

Day after a hot air balloon landed at a village in Raia, the Goa Tourism Development Corporation clarified that the service providers are conducting longer duration rides and are thus landing at new sites.
"Following the second incident of the hot air balloon landing at a new site in Raia on Saturday, GTDC has taken stock of the situation. The hot air balloon rides are being conducted and landings taking place as per the required procedures without endangering passengers or property," GTDC said in a statement it released, denying that the landing at Raia was a crash landing.
The department said that the news of crash landing is an attempt to create panic and paralyze a successful adventure initiative.
