The world’s most famous pilot – Santa Claus – will be taking to the skies this Christmas on board in-flight grottos, giving lucky passengers a festive surprise.
However this morning at Gatwick airport, Santa was stopped by airport security as staff
inspected his sack of presents before he was allowed to make his maiden flight on board
an easyJet Airbus A320
Santa, a pilot who has clocked up hundreds of thousands of air miles and has been
flying for over 1,700 years, is taking off earlier than scheduled this year to meet 20,000
passengers in advance of Christmas Day.
The UK’s leading airline easyJet, is launching more than 100 flights across Europe over
the festive period, which will see lucky children get a surprise from Father Christmas.
To celebrate the launch of the new festive themed flights easyJet surprised and
delighted children and families on board a flight to Europe. easyJet cabin crew and staff
rigged a plane with hidden cameras to capture the reactions of passengers as Captain
Claus’ voice came over the tannoy and delivered presents to those on-board.
Tina Milton, Head of Cabin Crew, easyJet said:
“We fly millions of people home or on holiday over the Christmas period and we want to get the festive feeling started on board. We have hired the world’s most famous pilot to fly on over 100 selected flights and give over 20,000 passengers an incredible surprise.”
Santa was spotted this morning by passengers at Gatwick airport as he prepared for his
pre-Christmas flight check at easyJet HQ. Swapping sleigh and reindeer for an aircraft,
Santa will be earning his wings as he takes to the skies on an Airbus A320.
