A Claus for celebration! AirAsia decks the airport red with a festive surprise this Christmas

Sleighing all the way: It’s always a good time for presents

It’s the most magical time of the year indeed! AirAsia dropped major festive cheer this week at klia2 and Changi Airport to a group of unsuspecting passengers ‒ and what a treat it was!

Passengers onboard flights AK527 and AK869 at klia2 on 19 December and flights QZ504, Z2825, AK707 & FD357 at Changi on 23 December had no clue what was awaiting them upon their arrival. In conjunction with the holiday season, AirAsia had planned a sweet gift-giving activation at two of its hubs ‒ Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.

Seeing red: It’s Christmastime!

The first of this special surprise took place at klia2, where cutely packed gift boxes comprising AirAsia caps, keychains, stationary, pouches and other cool AirAsia merchandise were neatly placed on the conveyor belts that contained the luggage from the two flights that just arrived from Ho Chi Minh City and Krabi. At first, glances of confusion were exchanged as the passengers had no clue as to what was going on. Soon, murmurs of excitement could be heard as joy filled the air.

Ms Sathya, who had just flown back from her beach vacation in Krabi was thrilled to receive the presents, saying: “I love this surprise – it puts us in an instant Christmas mood! My wish is that 2023 will be a fantastic year for everyone as we bounce back from Covid.”

The gift-giving wasn’t the only merry sight – the arrival halls at klia2 were decked with Christmas decorations and a festive backdrop for Instagrammable  memories. To make this day even more special, AirAsia’s very own Santa Claus paid a visit and made his rounds much to the delight of elated passengers, both the young and young at heart.

A Winter Wonderland

Each passenger received their very own Golden Ticket

At Terminal 4 in Changi Airport, delighted guests disembarking the four flights at different times throughout the day were greeted with a sight to behold! Santa and his army of elves excitedly greeted the bewildered passengers and handed them a golden ticket each with instructions.

The stunned passengers were invited to head over to AirAsia’s Winter Wonderland booth to tuck into some yummy snacks! Scrumptious cookies, cupcakes and muffins as well as an array of exclusive souvenirs and merchandise were awaiting them.

Mr Lee, who had flown from Bali with his family of four, said that his little ones were delighted at the sight of Santa and his elves.

“This just made our holidays more special. Most importantly, our kids had a great time. Thanks, AirAsia!”

This activation was made possible thanks to the support and generosity of Changi Airport Group, Singapore Tourism Board and Singapore Airport Terminal Services.
