United Airlines Sponsors “Fantasy Flight” for Homeless Children



On Friday, December 2, 2011 at 7:00 AM, 120 children, age’s five to six, most of who attend a school for the underprivileged, will depart from Sky Harbor International Airport for a “Fantasy Flight” to the North Pole.

After checking in for their “Fantasy Flight“, they will board a United A-320 aircraft designated “Santa One” at Gate 3, Terminal Two for the North Pole. After a brief flight, they will return to Gate C which has been decorated as “Santa’s Winter Wonderland”. They will be greeted by Santa and Mrs. Claus, who will host a festive holiday party including food, drinks, games, face painting, music and presents for all the children.

This is the Seventeenth year that United Airlines pilots, flight attendants, retirees and employees have volunteered their time and money to host a special Christmas for underpriviledged children. The participating students are in kindergarten and first grade. For most of the children, it will be their first flight on an airplane.


The following organizations have also donated their time and support:

Arizona Diamondbacks, ASU Cheerleaders, Phoenix Police and K-9 Unit, Phoenix Fire Department, the City of Phoenix, Sky Harbor Airport, Skychef, CA-1 services, EJ’s Produce, Foothills Sports Medicine, My Wine Cellar, Alliant Credit Union  have donated their time and money to support our flight.

United Airlines Fantasy Flight is a 501 C 3 designated charity and all donations are tax deductable. Refer to unitedfantasyflight.com
