Sleigh bells ring from Doncaster
Friday 15, October 2010
Santa’s little helpers can enjoy the trip of a lifetime with new festive flights to Lapland from Doncaster’s Robin Hood Airport.
The seasonal flight will be operating from December 3 2010, where families will be able to celebrate Christmas in the Arctic wilderness for a special three night break. The trip includes a private meeting with Santa himself – with presents and souvenirs for every youngster.
In addition a special Lapland day break will also be flying out from the Doncaster Sheffield Airport on December 20, with a range of winter wonderland activities such as a Husky sled journey, snow mobile trip, reindeer sleigh ride and a private meeting with Santa included.
Mike Morton, airport director said: “We are delighted to welcome the Christmas holiday season with such fantastic new winter getaways which will light up and bring smiles to many faces across the region."
“There is no better way to celebrate the wonderful festivities than escaping to such a beautiful, idyllic location - a place that everyone associates with Santa Claus and his merry little helpers. We are sure families will thoroughly enjoy a very special Christmas, with the added convenience of being able to fly from their local airport.”
The break incorporates full board accommodation in a selection of family run hotels. Prices start from £699 for an adult and £579 for a child for the three night trip, and £429 for an adult and £399 for a child for the Santa Lapland day break.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
