Santa may be the frequent flier this month, but he’s in good company – the Fredericton International Airport expects to welcome over 30,000 travellers in December. Travelling, especially during the busy holiday season, can sometimes be stressful and so to keep everyone merry and bright, a series of local musicians will perform in the airport each weekday morning December 17 – 24.
“Seeing families and friends reuniting in Arrivals is heartwarming and it reminds us of how fortunate we are to be a part of making these happy moments possible. Add some local musical talent and a few special surprises, and this truly does become the most wonderful time of the year,” says Fredericton International Airport president and CEO, Johanne Gallant.
This year’s performers include Katherine Moller, Chief Harold Sappier Memorial Elementary School, the Priestman Street Elementary School, Kelly Waterhouse, River Valley Chorus, and McKinley Leonard-Scott.
Travellers and their loved ones can expect some special surprises throughout the week as well. Stay tuned to the Fredericton International Airport’s Twitter feed for updates: www.twitter.com/yfcairport.
