WestJet delivered Christmas presents to airline passengers when they reached their destination, just like Santa Claus came out of the friendly skies a bit early. These gifts weren’t small, some folks asked for big screen TVs and got them. One woman asked for diamond earrings and they were waiting in the baggage claim area near her suitcases all wrapped up with her name on them, according to “Fox and Friends” live on Tuesday morning Dec. 10.
The Huffington Post reports on Dec. 9 that the Calgary-based airline WestJet has electronic Santa’s sprinkled throughout Hamilton and Toronto airports. Travelers talk live to Santa on a screen and tell them what they want for Christmas. The kids love talking to Santa, but the grownups look to be having just as much fun when telling him what they want for Christmas. Little did they known that their wish would be granted.
When the flight departs, WestJet elves scurry to the stores and fill those Christmas wishes and then wrap them up. The name of the passenger is attached to the gift and they are left in the baggage claim area for the passengers to get a big Christmas surprise.
Along with their baggage, big blue boxes with the passengers name on them are waiting to go home. The baggage area is staged with fake snow falling, Christmas music and a giant gingerbread man handing out cookies.
WestJet offers these weary holiday travelers a magical end to their journey. The WestJet employees who make the mad shopping dash, make sure all the Christmas presents are wrapped, ready and waiting for the passengers when they arrive. They have quite the task to complete, but they did it. Some folks asked for socks and underwear, while others set their sights high with big-ticket items. WestJet got everything on the list.
When some of the younger women passengers asked for “a husband,” they were given a Ken Doll wrapped up for Christmas. The WestJet elves thought of everything!
Last year WestJet employees broke out in a flash mob singing Christmas carols and handed out new iPods to airline passengers. Now there’s some friendly skies!
