Uber To Launch A New Hot Air Balloon Service In China

By now we should be used to extraordinary and occasionally weird announcement ending up as authentic and real news. One such news was when we heard that Uber was planning to launch a hot air balloon service which would work pretty much the same as its car service does.

The service which is currently exclusive to China could be a marketing strategy for Uber to distinguish itself from its competitors such as Didi Chuxing. You will be able to request the balloon pretty much the same way you request a car, via app.

Uber+Travel isn’t just restricting itself to just balloons but it is also extending to include boats within its services. You will also have to choice of ordering a taxi boat if you don’t want to drive or fly.

The move is just restricted to China at the moment as Uber is forecasted to become the most popular car service by the end of the year, although we should expect the same services to be made outside of China in the following months.

With this new venture that Uber is about to take we can safely say that Uber is on a mission to fly as high as possible and make its mark.
