Last night was one of the busiest nights in the year for our air traffic controllers. The Santa Commanders handed over to them on Christmas Eve so that they could safety manage Santa, his reindeer, and all the other aircraft flying in Australia’s skies. Santa departed Australian airspace in the early hours of this morning following a successful present delivery operation.
Santa also thanked Airservices for helping him travel safely and wished everyone a very Happy Christmas.
