Transwest Air 17th Annual Santa Claus Takes Flight

Giving Rudolf and the other reindeer a rest before their big night, Santa Claus climbed aboard a plane to bring some early holiday joy to a number of northern communities.

Armed with jingle bells and a bag packed with gifts, St. Nick elicited nothing but smiles from youth in Fond du Lac, Black Lake, Stony Rapids, and Wollaston Lake over the past two days.

The excursion is part of the annual Transwest Air Santa Claus Takes Flight initiative to bring the jolly gift-giver to communities they serve in an effort to recognize their support.
