Christmas time is slowly approaching and we’re soon ready for this year’s edition of Fly and See Santa. Fly into either Rovaniemi (EFRO), Tromsø (ENTC) or Kiruna (ESNQ) on Saturday the 9th of December from 17 to 23z when VATSIM Scandinavia invites you to Fly and See Santa 2023.
This event usually attracts a lot of pilots, and we recommend you have extra fuel for some delays. Bring your favourite beverages and some snacks onboard, because it will most likely be a long night for you.
Make sure you are familiar with reprogramming your aircraft, because reroutes along your trip might happen due to excess traffic along the route.
Visit our Santa Web for briefings for the airports, routes, charts and scenery suggestions.
The booking system is already open, and will remain open for bookings until Saturday the 8th of December at 17:00z. The departure field is not determined in the booking system, and it is up to you where you want to start your trip.

There might be some delays if you decide to fly to the event airports without a booking. More information will be announced later.
Our controllers in Norway, Sweden and Finland are going to do their best to make your visit into our airspace as enjoyable as possible. We are hoping you will enjoy this year’s edition of Fly and See Santa and we are looking forward to seeing you in our airspace!
Merry Christmas and a happy new year!
