The Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta, which was scheduled for March 19 to 22 has been postponed, following the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak.

According to BERNAMA, AKA Balloon Sdn Bhd and Perbadanan Putrajaya (PPJ) said this was to prioritise the health and safety of the public, pilots, vendors and suppliers, and staff members.

“After extensive and careful consideration, the current global Covid-19 outbreak has made it impossible at this time to predict the scale of the outbreak during the dates of the event alongside the increasing uncertainty of cross-border movement of visitors, pilots and staff”.

The four-day event was set to showcase more than 25 hot air balloons from 13 countries including Malaysia and was expected to welcome more than 200,000 visitors.
