(23 December 2019) Hovertravel welcomed the VIP of the season today, when Santa paid a flying visit to their Ryde terminal, stopping briefly to hand out chocolates to customers. Following his advance team of elves who were working at both Hovertravel terminals over the weekend, Mr Claus was a welcome sight for everyone crossing the Solent this morning.
Mr Claus added: “Today is obviously one of my busiest days of the year, so I could only afford the time for a very quick trip to Hovertravel. It was fabulous to see the staff dressed up in their Christmas costumes, there were several elves and even a Christmas Tree!”
Hovertravel has offered a fun-filled round-up to Christmas Day with free presents for children, staff dressed up in seasonal outfits and several charitable initiatives for the communities on both sides of the Solent.
