Air Canada conducts airport holiday promotion
Air Canada of Montreal is conducting an airport-based promotion during the holiday season. Temporary installations have been placed at airports in Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal at which Air Canada pilots and flight attendants will distribute teddy bears, balloons and flowers to travelers arriving on certain flights. Some travelers also receive free airline tickets. Online videos depicting various arrivals have been posted on the airline's Instagram, Facebook and Twitter pages. The promotion is part of a larger overall campaign called "Home" which began in November.
"The arrivals gate is an emotional and personal place for many of us, full of the excitement and anticipation that come from reunions with loved ones," says Andy Shibata, managing brand director at Air Canada. "For travelers, stepping out into the arrivals area is often the first moment where they feel like they've arrived home. That is such an important part of the holiday season for so many of our customers, so we wanted to do our part to make it extra special."
