Ok, Westjet win. This is the best Christmas surprise of the year.

Travelling during the holidays can be a nightmare. Lost presents and luggage, delays and grumpy passengers can make airports the least fun places ever. However, Westjet turned that on it’s head for some lucky passengers at Toronto and Hamilton International in Canada.

Westjet employed a tech savvy Santa in a box who asked passengers what they wanted for Christmas. Passengers then proceeded to board their flights while the Westjet team went shopping for their Christmas presents…

More than 150 Westjet volunteers took part in the stunt gathering, wrapping and delivering the presents to passengers destination, Calgary.

Watch their faces, it’s brilliant.

“But why?” – I hear you ask. Vice President of Westjet Communications and Community Relations, Richard Bartrem will tell you.
