On December 24th a Spanair flight from Barcelona to Las Palmas arrived close to midnight. 190 people were flying while everyone else celebrated Christmas Eve.
What a beautiful surprise. Watch the video below. You’ll be glad you did.
And no, passengers were not charged a ‘surprise’ fee.
From Spanair, “Christmas is a very special moment so we decided to do something special for them, too”.
Spanair’s Chief Commercial Officer Nuria Tarre said the company spent two months planning the promo. Instead of luggage, gifts appeared on the baggage claim carousel, each with a name on it: a teddy bear for a toddler, an underwater camera for a couple going on vacation, and so on. “Each of the gifts had their name, and they were appropriate, whether it was for children, older people, Spaniards or foreigners,” Tarre said. “We tried to customize the gift.”
