TS Takes Off With 14th Annual Flight With Santa
It has become a real tradition just before the holiday season, Air Transat and the Children’s Wish Foundation’s 'Flight with Santa Claus' took place 5DEC with hundreds of kids and their families taking part in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver.
“At Air Transat, it warms our heart to enable hundreds of children and their families to experience a unique and magical moment”, said Annick Guérard, chief operating officer, Transat. “Since 2004, this flight holds a very special place in our hearts and every year, we are amazed by the dedication of the Foundation, our employees, volunteers and collaborators that make this tradition such a wonderful event. They go all out to make this day an unforgettable one.”
“The annual Flight with Santa Claus is truly a magical day that brings incredible joy to children diagnosed with a life-threatening illness,” said Chris Kotsopoulos, CEO at the Children’s Wish Foundation. “It allows children and their families to create special holiday memories to cherish for years to come.”
During the event, Air Transat announced a donation of $80,000 to Children’s Wish, which represents the amounts collected over the past year as part of the air carrier’s ‘Small Change, Big Hearts’ program and other initiatives, and is in addition to the over $6 million raised for Children’s Wish since the inception of the partnership between both organizations in 2004.
