Check in begins at 4 p.m. at the Colorado Springs Airport United Airlines ticket counter, and the Fantasy Flight will depart at approximately 6 p.m.
“The annual Fantasy Flight brings the holiday season in its truest form – giving back while
celebrating the wonders of being a child,” said Lori Hunt, SkyWest’s vice president – People. “SkyWest’s people are honored to bring the miracle of flight and the magic of the season to Colorado Springs children.”
SkyWest will carry the children aboard a SkyWest Airlines Canadair Regional Jet 700 (CRJ700) on a 30-minute flight from the Colorado Springs Airport to the “North Pole.” There, the little passengers will be greeted by Santa Claus himself. The night will also include dinner for the children and their families as well as appearances from local Olympians and Sox the Fox, pictures with Santa, a petting zoo and much more!
Children aboard the Fantasy Flight are enrolled in one of CPCD’s early childhood education
programs. These children live at or below the federal poverty level, have an identified special need, or have a fragile home situation that puts them at risk for school failure.
“The holidays can be a stressful time for our children and families, 80 percent of whom are living in poverty,” said CPCD CEO Noreen Landis-Tyson. “Through Fantasy Flight, SkyWest and the Junior League of Colorado Springs provide an unparalleled experience that brings joy and spirit of the holidays to our community’s most vulnerable young citizens. We look forward to this annual event and are grateful to SkyWest and the JLCS for their commitment to making it memorable every year.”
Media are invited and encouraged to attend this memorable holiday experience. Check in begins at 4 p.m. at the Colorado Springs Airport at the United Airlines ticket counter, and the Fantasy Flight will depart at approximately 6 p.m. SkyWest Airlines, a subsidiary of SkyWest, Inc., employs more than 10,500 aviation professionals and serves a total of 182 cities in 40 states, six Canadian provinces, seven cities in Mexico, and the Bahamas with more than 1,700 daily departures.
