Santa touches down in Singapore on his Finnair sleigh

To spread the Nordic Christmas cheer in Singapore, Finnair has flown Santa Claus from his hometown in Rovaniemi all the way to Singapore in the tropics.

Upon touch down at Changi Airport on December 5, Santa made his rounds across the arrival hall and mingled with passengers who were taking the night flight out to Helsinki, and handed out piparkakut (traditional Finnish gingerbread cookies).

Santa will also visit the inaugural Nordic-Asia Christmas Festival – a festival that showcases products from Finland, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Iceland and Estonia – at Millenia Walk, where Finnair will also have its own Christmas Challenge video booth, a lucky draw, photo opportunities with Santa, as well as a line-up of kid-friendly activities.

Other highlights in Finnair’s four-day tour of Singapore with Santa Claus include joining the Embassy of Finland for a celebration of Finnish Independence Day, participating in the Finnair Football Fiesta community event, spending time with the school kids at GEMS World Academy Kindergarten and the Overseas Family School, and making the holidays extra special for the sick children at KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital.
