Luton Airport, easyjet creates the world’s biggest Christmas light show on a plane

 Tuesday, December 18, 2018 


A festive aircraft covered in Christmas lights has been unveiled by the Luton Airport , where more than 8,500 choreographed lights and 1.5 miles of LED micro bulbs were used to create the light show. A special team of 10 special effects artists and lighting designers had spent four weeks on designing and creating the light show.



Claimed as the world’s biggest ever light show involving an aircraft and jointly worked by the Luton Airport and easyjet, however one should not expect to see it in the sky anytime soon.



At one point the A320 Airbus showed lighting when covered in a wrapping paper and later it gave an illusion of gifts falling out of the doors. It took almost a day to cover the easyjet Airbus with lights  along with a 5,000 square metre aircraft hanger with Christmas lights and  decorations.



There were voting for the Britain’s least favourite airport three years in a row by the ground staff at the busy Bedfordshire airport.




Tina Milton, director of cabin services at easyJet, said that a lot of  people who work in a regular office participate in festive decorating, so she laid down the challenge to ground crew to create the most spectacular light show featuring a plane.




The project was aimed at recognizing the efforts of airport staff involved in the extensive re-development of the project which will increase its annual capacity to 18 million passengers by 2020.




Operations director of London Luton Airport, Neil Thompson on reaching the end of the redevelopment  which is the largest in the airports 80-year history. He said that they wanted to extend a huge thank you to staff and customers and give them a special Christmas gift.
