London Luton Airport had been getting in the festive spirit, treating hundreds to a spectacular festive surprise.
The world’s first Christmas light show to feature on a 120ft aircraft!
easyJet provided the canvas, an A320 Airbus, for airport groundstaff to create a spectacular festive experience by wrapping the aircraft in Christmas lights.
The light show, which was synced to a contemporary remix of Tchaikovsky’s Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy, consisted of over 850,000 choreographed light sequences and used 1.5 miles of LED micro bulbs.
The airport and easyJet teamed up to put on a show for hundreds of airport staff who have been involved in the expansive, three-year redevelopment of the airport, which increases the annual capacity of the airport to 18 million passengers by 2020.
Local children from Chantry Primary Academy and Whitefield Primary School were invited to the big unveil, as 9-year-old Maddy Simonite kicked off the festive display by switching on the lights for the first time.
“Switching on the lights made me feel like I started Christmas! I’ve been to see the Oxford Street Christmas lights but this was ten times better!” Simonite said.
