Travellers flying though Melbourne Airport during December will have the chance to share in more than $100,000 worth of gifts through the airport’s Light Up Christmas campaign.  
Gifts up for grabs include: one million Velocity Frequent Flyer Points, two Singapore Airlines’ Premium Economy flights to Europe, two Jetstar flights to Bali or Phuket plus lounge passes, valet parking and retail offers.
To kick-off the airport’s Christmas festivities a brass quintet from the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra performed traditional carols for international travellers in the airport’s T2 Luxury Precinct on Thursday 13 December.
Musicians from The Salvation Army will also perform in Terminals 2 to 4 every day throughout December.
Melbourne Airport CEO Lyell Strambi said it is important to celebrate Christmas especially for travellers who may be away from their family and friends.
“Christmas is such a special time and we really want Victorian travellers and visitors alike to experience the magic of the holidays while they travel, particularly those flying on Christmas Day,” said Mr Strambi.
“Our forecasts predict that more than 6.5 million people overall will fly through Melbourne in December and January combined, another driving force behind our largest Christmas promotion in history.
“Santa will be making an appearance and this year, for the first time, we will invite buskers from Bourke Street to entertain passengers.
“We will also encourage travellers to donate to The Salvation Army’s chaplaincy service which supports thousands of people at the airport each year.
“On behalf of Melbourne Airport I wish our travellers, staff and contractors a safe and happy Christmas.”
To enter the Melbourne Airport Light Up Christmas competition travellers must redeem a gift card from one of the airport’s hipster elves and follow the prompts.
