A Christmas surprise is made even sweeter when it is unexpected. West Jet planned a Christmas surprise for some of its passengers flying on Christmas Eve.
Says West Jet: “For 12 days, we surprised thousands of guests across our network to spread a little WestJet Christmas cheer. Our WestJetters and special guests brought them to life, but the vision came straight from the minds of those who know the magic of Christmas best – children.”
At their airport from which they were departing, an electronic Santa asked each family member what they wanted for Christmas when they checked in.
Although the passengers had a lot of fun interacting with Santa, they did not expect what would happen at the end of their flight. Each passenger indicated what they wanted. Their requests ranged from socks and underwear to a big screen TV.
While the passengers were on their flight, Santa’s elves from West Jet went to work, purchasing what they requested.
And when the passengers debarked from the plane, they were surprised by the wrapped presents at the end of their journey, just as they requested when they left.
Santa came to the airport dressed in West Jet blue to greet everyone and wish them a Merry Christmas.
The video of this event was circulated around the world. Thank you, Santa, for making people’s dreams come true.
