Dublin, Thursday, 12th December, 2019: It was all aboard the Santa Express today as over 30 children from Temple Street Children’s Hospital in Dublin went in search of Santa when they took to the skies above Ireland.
In the company of their families, the children were guests of CityJet as its special Santa Express departed Dublin to check on how Santa’s preparations were progressing. With the help of Santa’s little helpers and his elves, the children enjoyed Christmas carols, face painting and party games before flight departure and a party afterwards at the airport.
On hand to help were pupils from Loreto Secondary School, Balbriggan, and pilots, cabin crew and ground staff from CityJet.
Denise Fitzgerald , CEO, Temple Street Foundation, said: “On behalf of all of us here in Temple Street, I would like thank CityJet for this special day and for helping our patients make wonderful memories and experience a little Christmas magic at a difficult time in their lives.”
CityJet Chief Commercial Officer, Cathal O’ Connell, said: “This is the highlight of the year for our staff and we all cherish the opportunity to be involved in such a small way to bring some Christmas happiness to wonderful boys and girls and their loved ones. All of us at CityJet value the opportunity of making and sharing Christmas memories.”
CityJet also thanked the following for assisting with the event: AIG, Gate Gourmet, DAA platinum and Smyths Toys.
