EasyJet has launched a new service to hand deliver children’s letters to Santa in Lapland this Christmas.   

The airline has installed special post boxes at its major airports this December, including Bristol Airport.

The campaign has been launched after research conducted by the airline found that 71 per cent of children flying away on holiday during Christmas are worried that Santa won’t be able to find them. 

Young travellers passing through Bristol will have the opportunity to drop off their letters via easyJet’s special orange post boxes in the airport terminal ahead of the big day.  

The airline is also providing a special letter collection service to local schools near its UK airports which will see easyJet’s cabin crew collect letters to take directly to Santa.

The letters will be delivered on easyJet flights from across the UK and Europe directly to Rovaniemi in Lapland, the home of Santa Claus. easyJet pilots and cabin crew will then hand deliver them the big man himself.

EasyJet Pilot Hannah Wells, who is set to deliver letters from the UK to Lapland later this month, said: "Christmas is a magical time for families, and travelling somewhere festive, for some winter sun, or to see friends and family can make it really special. 

“We hope our Letters to Santa postal service will bring some extra magic to the thousands of families travelling with us around the holidays and to schools in our local airport communities, where our fantastic cabin crew will be making sure that even more wishes are hand-delivered to Santa in time for Christmas." 

EasyJet is set to operate its biggest-ever schedule from the UK to Lapland this year, with services to Rovaniemi up to four times a week from Bristol.
