Aer Lingus have been bringing people home for Christmas since 1936. This year, they wanted to make Christmas extra special for families across the world, who couldn’t make it home to see their loved ones. Taking to social media, they quietly sought out five families for a very festive homecoming.
From Chicago, they brought Nigel and his family home, so that his mother didn’t have to spend Christmas on her own. Niamh came home for the first time in 14 years with her daughter. From New York, they brought Clare home to her family in Cork, while Tomás flew from Toronto to be reunited with his family in Galway. Fintan flew home from New York to give his mother a truly special Christmas surprise.
