Many airlines are making holiday videos whether it be new safety videos or just fun holiday videos. While, props to WestJet for this great video called WestJet Christmas Miracle.
I dont wan’t to give too much away, but it’s a fun video and you can see how WestJet granted these passengers wishes on two random flights, so definitely check it out!
With the help of 175 WestJet volunteers, three airports and Santa himself, WestJet made a Christmas miracle happen for more than 250 guests on two Calgary-bound flights.
You can read the behind the scenes scoop here and see how they made this all possible.
They are also having a fun twitter contest where they are giving away airfare for two, anywhere WestJet flies
Here’s what you need to know to enter the contest:
From your Twitter account, follow @WestJet and send a Tweet that includes
1) the “#WestJetChristmas” hashtag,
2) the link to the WestJet Christmas Miracle video on YouTube and
