Santa Flights to take off from London Southend Airport again

Tickets now on sale   

Father Christmas is once again swapping his sleigh and reindeer for an easyJet plane on Saturday 1 December to raise cash for Essex charities and good causes whilst delivering an enchanting festive experience in the skies for local children. 

The hugely popular Santa Flights are back at London Southend Airport for 2018, and tickets are now on sale. 

Santa will be at the controls, with his cheeky band of elves as the cabin crew to look after and entertain everyone with carol singing and games, during the two 45-minute flights.


Before boarding the flight, the Christmas experience also includes a visit to ‘Winter Wonderland‘ for a delicious festive themed buffet, a chance to write a letter to Father Christmas and post it in a special Santa post-box and a fun-packed family show by leading Essex entertainer Nicky Trix including magic, illusions, comedy and ventriloquism.

The Cliffs Pavilion team will also be on hand giving out ‘Aladdin’themed gift bags – watch out for the magic carpet?! All this plus a surprise gift (kindly donated by PMS International Toys in Basildon), snowmen and a Christmas choir.

Glyn Jones, Chief Executive Officer of Stobart Aviation, owners of London Southend Airport says: “The festive Santa Flightsare a truly magical day out for the children and their families, so we are delighted to be able to provide them again, whilst also raising much-needed funds for fantastic local charities and good causes.”
