Aircraft Celebrates Christmas

Luton Airport ground staff have created a festive spectacular by wrapping an easyJet A320 with 1.5 miles of multi-colored Christmas lights. The show, which took place in the easyJet hangar, saw the festive projections synced to a contemporary remix of Tchaikovsky’s Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy – and left the audience in awe.

Over 850,000 choreographed light sequences were used, with a team of 10 special effects artists and lighting designers spending four weeks working to design and create the light show ahead of the big reveal. The team was given just 24 hours to create the festive transformation ahead of a grand reveal.

Airport staff and local children from Chantry Primary Academy and Whitefield Primary School were invited to the big unveil. It was kicked off by nine-year-old Maddy Simonite, who flicked the on the switch.

She said, “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!”

The festive surprise took place as easyJet and London Luton Airport prepare for one of their busiest Christmas getaway periods. Over three and a half million passengers will be taking to the skies with easyJet to be reunited with loved ones this Christmas.

The airport is currently undergoing a three-year redevelopment to increase annual capacity to 18 million passengers. The $250 million regeneration project will add $1 billion to the UK economy and an extra 10,000 jobs by 2030.

The Christmas light show is part of the airport’s 80th-anniversary celebrations.
