Climb aboard for a trip to the magic of Christmas

With less than 40 days until Christmas what better way to prepare for the festive season than taking a once in a lifetime opportunity to spend a day in Santa’s Lapland, flying direct from Durham Tees Valley Airport.

The airport has teamed up with Transun to offer a magical trip to Lapland on Sunday, December 15th. 

The package gives travellers the opportunity to ride snowmobiles, husky sleds and reindeer sleighs - and, of course, a trip to Lapland wouldn’t be complete without a private family meeting with Santa in his cabin, which is hidden in the woods.

The exciting daybreak will depart from the airport at 7.30am and return later in the evening – allowing passengers to be home in time for supper! 

Departures fly to Enontekio in Finland – an airport in a remote wilderness location, which satisfies Transun’s aim to operate in authentic Lapland locations, far from mass-market commercialised resorts.   For every three adults travelling a free child place is available and for every two adults a child can travel half price.

Transun’s James Crawshaw said: “Transun is delighted to be flying from Durham Tees Valley in 2013. We have the UK’s largest Lapland day programme and are pleased we can run this magical opportunity for people from the North East.”

Steve Gill, Managing Director of the airport added: “We are pleased Transun has chosen to operate this special Santa trip from Durham Tees Valley this year, providing a unique opportunity to experience some real festive magic.” 

Established in 1982, Transun is an independent tour operator offering a selection of charter departures to Lapland from the UK.
