Won't you guide my sleigh tonight?

All of our customers are special to us. But this year, our subsidiary Jeppesen went to some unusual lengths to make sure one customer got the VIP treatment—even though this customer flies reindeer instead of airplanes.

Jeppesen has been creating navigational charts from scratch for more than eight decades, using raw source data from reporting agencies around the world. So they jumped at the chance to help Santa Claus when he asked for a tailored approach as guidance for his reindeer to the international workshop at the North Pole.

The chart for the jolly old elf comes complete with a hot cocoa de-ice pad located next to milk/cookie overflow storage, UNICOM changed to ELFCOM, and Red/White ramp markings on sizable ramp facilitate flow for the most efficient toy loading. You can check out Jeppesen’s chart for Santa here, and see a video below.

And just in case you somehow missed another holiday video that’s been getting worldwide attention, check out this wildly creative campaign by our customer WestJet.

Hi Randy,

Thanks for posting the Westjet video. A feel good video for the Christmas season.

Can you also post a picture of Westjet's Mickey Mouse/Disneyland 737-800. This has to be the most spectacular painted aircraft in a long time.

Merry Christmas.

I got a nice Vornado fan from Santa, (originally given to my dad) but from Santa's sleigh.

Merry Christmas everyone!
