PrivateFly welcomes families to Santa’s Gulfstream grotto

Santa Claus took a break from Christmas Eve preparation to welcome families to his Gulfstream G450 grotto, based at Harrods Aviation at London Luton Airport.

The Gulfstream is operated by Pen-Avia, a recent addition to PrivateFly’s charter network, and was transformed into Santa’s grotto for the occasion. The family-friendly event saw over 100 special guests visit the hub, giving them the opportunity to enjoy the Harrods Aviation facility and tours of the jet.

Children got the chance to meet Santa and have their photo taken. They also received a gift from PrivateFly and a Harrods teddy. Festive canapés and drinks were served in the lounge by On Air Dining, and the event also invited guests to donate to children’s charity St Elizabeth’s.

Adam Twidell, CEO and co-founder of PrivateFly, said, “This was such a fun way to celebrate the festive season and the end of a very busy year for PrivateFly, with our clients, corporate partners and friends.

“The Gulfstream G450 might not quite be able to fly around the world in one night like Santa’s sleigh, but with an impressive range of 4,350 nautical miles it can fly our clients on transcontinental flights such as London to New York, or Paris to Dubai. It was an ideal opportunity to showcase both the great facilities at Harrods Aviation Luton, and to introduce an impressive new aircraft in our charter network.”
