Airport announces Lapland Special for next Christmas


It’s the ultimate Christmas treat and it’s returning to Durham Tees Valley Airport this December.

Leading independent travel operator Newmarket Holidays has announced that for the first time it will be offering the ultimate family fun day, flying direct from Durham Tees Valley on Wednesday, December 23rd, with a winter wonderland adventure which will include sleigh rides, the chance to take a trip through the forests on a high-powered snowmobile…and a once-in-a-lifetime meeting with Santa Claus himself in his home high above the Arctic Circle.

The Santa Special will fly from Durham Tees Valley to the remote Pajala Airport where guests will be met by their Lapland hosts for a day never to forget. Wrapped up in the thermal clothes they will provided with on their arrival, they will enjoy a whole range of activities…the highlight of which will be, of course, a walk through the forest to the log cabin for a private meeting with that Very Special Person.

Says Durham Tees Valley Airport Managing Director Steve Gill “We know that in the past Christmas special flights have proved very popular with our customers and we are delighted that Newmarket Holidays, with whom we have a long-standing relationship, will be offering this unique experience just a couple of days before Christmas Day itself.”

“In addition to the Christmas flight, Newmarket will be offering a range of traditional packages and escorted tours around Italy which include, Capri, Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast, Venice, Verona and Lake Garda, Italian Lakes and Beautiful Amalfi Coast.”

Adds Amanda George, Commercial Manager for Newmarket Holidays “We are delighted to be expanding from Durham Tees Valley Airport and we want to ensure we are giving the people within the region more choice.”

Numbers will be strictly limited on the Newmarket Santa Experience, with the price including return flights and transfers, the hire of full thermal clothing, all the activities and the Santa visit, as well as in-flight catering, lunch and warming drinks throughout the day.
