This is usually one of our favourite blogs of the year; marvelling at the creative genuis the airports come up with to make their passengers feel extra festive. 2020 may be a little different for obvious reasons, but we wanted to kepe the Christmas spirit alive so we are revisting the airports of last year and se what they’re doing this year…where they can!
Amsterdam Airport Schiphol
Our European neighbours have shown how it’s done with a great array of Christmas lights on show at the main terminal. The tree’s looking great again this year but we’re a little sad that Father Christmas isn’t wondering through the baggage reclaim hall with last minute prezzies this time!
Orlando International Airport
Across the pond this time to Orlando International Airport who has a stand out Christmas theme that’s certainly attracted the attention of its passengers! Many travellers are keen to snap a pic in front of the wonderful tree sitting in the terminal; their 40ft wonder has made a return for this year.
Changi Airport is arguably the prettiest looking airport for Christmas lights in Asia. This year, they’ve opted for Changi Festival village for those travelling through the airport; this will an absolute dream for both kids and adults alike…
Atlanta airport is full of festivity with its beautiful Christmas tree and people dressing up to sing along to various events taking place throughout the festive period!
#ATLAirport Presents: Toyland- a special event designed to spread holiday cheer and education. This year we partnered with three local schools to give over 350 gift bags to students and teachers. Thank you to all our volunteers and sponsors for making this joyful event happen🎄🧸 pic.twitter.com/0UhJ2sa78i

Hong Kong International Airport
Back in Asia, in Hong Kong, they have a great display of a huge Christmas tree and a little Santa! It is a very cute display and we’re sure if you’re travelling with the little ones, they will enjoy this very much.
