Finnair will fly Santa Claus to destinations across the world this festive season.
In a partnership with the Santa Claus Foundation, the carrier has become the ‘Official Airline of Santa Claus’, and will operate two aircraft adorned with images of Father Christmas.
The Airbus 321 jets have already taken to the skies and will now serve a series of destinations and further afield, including Asia. Finnair has also increased its flights to Lapland, the home of Santa Claus.
“Santa Claus is a tremendously important element of Finland’s image in Asia as well as Europe, and Finnair is pleased to support this as the Official Airline of Santa Claus. Additional flights to Lapland give Finnish and international passengers the opportunity to experience Finnish Lapland as a Christmassy and wintry destination,” said Jarkko Konttinen, Finnair’s vice President of marketing & product.
Finally, Finnair will serve up a Christmas menu in the business class cabins of its long-haul flights from Helsinki between 26 November and 30 December, including mulled wine.
