Air France-KLM VA presents The 2017 Santa Letter Mail Drop | @ LFPG - 171800ZDEC17
Have you ever wondered where all those letters to Santa sent by children all over the world go? Answer: a small post office in the Finnish town of Rovaniemi, located inside the Arctic Circle. It is here that elves – yes, you read that correctly – sort over 500,000 letters for dear old Saint Nick.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to rendezvous with a group of Air France Cargo and Martinair pilots in Paris for a venture north to Rovaniemi. You will travel through blizzardy cold, hail and snow to successfully deliver thousands of letters to Santa Claus from the children (and adults) of France.
Air France-KLM VA cordially invites you to The 2017 Santa Letter Mail Drop, a holiday season event.

Each Group will consist of five pilots and will be led by a flight leader. The flight plan will be available from myself (Martinair 003) or @MathAviation7, co-host and originator of The Santa Letter Mail Drop. Gates will be assigned to all participants and will be noted below upon receipt of RSVP in the comments section.
