Children from various international flights were treated to a bit of the Christmas spirit at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) and other major international airports as Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) organised Christmas give away for children.
Scores of children were ushered to see St. Nicholas (Santa Claus) at his stand at the E Arrival Hall of the airport where he doled out gift items to the arriving kids.
Speaking at the event, Regional Manager South West, FAAN, Mrs Victoria Shin-Aba said the initiative was meant to show the kids the Christmas spirit.
She said FAAN is doing it all over its international airport and the aim is to welcome the kids.
She said,” In the spirit of the season we had this last year and we felt this year the children especially those coming into the country so they can have a feel of the season.
“You see their smiles, surprises that show that something great is happening around international terminals in the country.
“The children are getting welcome packages and this is being done in the four international airports and there is one going on at the General Aviation Terminal ( GAT) in Lagos.
The first flight, an Emirates EK781 from Lagos to Dubai arrived at 9:30 while other international flights experienced same.
