    NATS, the UK Air Traffic Control provider, have yet again produced a fantastic video on the preparations they make to allow Santa to fly this Christmas


    Excellent, I like that sort of thing.


    But no references to emergency evacuation procedures in the event of Rudolph ditching the sled on water or warnings against inflating life vests whilst descending down chimneys…

    And, BTW, is there an emergency exit row?


    Good video. Santa must be the only person who has more air miles than the guy who used his amex to purchase 170M painting! 😉


    Two years ago I was in the US and on a breakfast TV show they had an Air Force Colonel who completely straight faced detailed the preparations being made to allow Santa access to US airspace at “hypersonic” speed.

    Absolutely brilliant


    I wonder what arrangements are made when Santa ‘drops’ into the airport services to offer Christmas greetings.. Is he liable to UK airport taxes and how will he be treated by Security personnel.

    Luckily Santa will not suffer from fuel duty charges.

    An early Happy Christmas everyone..
