Notre Histoire Pere noel

For many years now, Santa Claus has been boarding Air France flights to continue the tradition of dropping off countless toys and gifts around Christmas trees across the world.

As early as 1967, he could be seen boarding the Falcon Mystère 20, a specially chartered flight for the occasion. This year, he boarded an Airbus A320 from Lapland to put down his sack at Paris-Charles de Gaulle, on 17 December.

With his arms full of goodies, he went to meet young travellers and children invited by the association Pays de Roissy, who were delighted to see him and gave him a warm welcome.

A lovely surprise and magic moments to cherish by both young and old!
