A Magical Flight with Santa

As a child diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, the opportunity to travel on a plane can be rare. That’s why the Children’s Wish Foundation partners annually with Air Transat to host a special holiday event for Wish families.

On December 6, 250 children and their loved ones were given the chance to fly with Santa and experience the magic of flight with their families. The 13th annual Santa flight was a memorable day for the participants, with some children experiencing flying for the very first time.

As the travel insurance provider for the Children’s Wish Foundation of BC/Yukon, Pacific Blue Cross was given the opportunity to invite four staff members and their children to join in on the holiday fun. “It was heartwarming to see so many children enjoying their flying experience,” says Adrian Bois, Director of Individual Plans at Pacific Blue Cross, who attended the event along with other PBC staff. “This makes me proud to be part of an organization that helps grant travel wishes for these amazing children.”

Pacific Blue Cross will also be partnering with the Children’s Wish Foundation on a unique campaign in March 2018 – check back soon for more details.
