United Airlines Hosts Fantasy Flights to the “North Pole”
United Airlines is once again hosting Fantasy Flights to the “North Pole” for children living with illnesses or in poorer communities.
The flights transport children and their families on United Airlines aircraft to the “North Pole.” Passengers then arrive at an airport gate or hangar where the airline has created a space filled with lights, Christmas trees, and other holiday decorations. Children have a chance to meet Santa Claus and local celebrities, as well as have the opportunity to receive gifts and play games.
Employees and retirees volunteer their time to coordinate and operate the events. United Airlines supplies the aircraft and event locations, while the food, decorations, costumes, and money for gifts come entirely from over 1,500 volunteers each year.
