Merry Christmas! Enjoying Decorated Airports While Flying Home (to Slovakia) for Christmas

Merry Christmas! Christmas Trees from Tokyo to Nitra via Delhi, Amsterdam, and Vienna

Merry Christmas!

A couple of days ago, I made my way from Tokyo to Nitra, Slovakia – my hometown – for my annual Christmas visit. (Having grown up in Europe, I can’t imagine spending Christmas in Japan…)

While I will write reviews of all the flights I took and lounges I visited later on, today I want to look at the trip from a holiday point of view…

The trip started at Narita airport where, after checking-in, I headed to JAL’s Sakura Lounge which had a white Christmas tree decorating its reception.

Then, I took JAL’s 787-8 to Delhi. And, while walking towards the immigration at Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International airport, I was welcomed by a giant Santa Claus.

After spending a couple of hours in Old Delhi, I returned to the airport to catch a KLM flight to Amsterdam. And, the first thing that welcomed me in the check-in area of the terminal – that is, after the guard that checked my ticket at the terminal’s door – was another Christmas decoration.

The Christmas spirit continued airside as well – both in the public areas…

…and in the lounges.

In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if Delhi airport – quite unexpectedly – was one of the airports with the highest presence of Santas in the world!

From Delhi, I took KLM’s flight to Amsterdam. One of the trees that stood out the most at the airport was the Dior one below.

Then, after a couple of hours in transit, I took a flight to Vienna, Austria – about 1.5 hours drive from my home in Slovakia. Of course, there was plenty of Christmas trees and decorations there as well.

Finally, at Vienna airport, I was picked up by my parents and drove home where THE Christmas tree (at least for me personally) was already waiting.

Well, it wasn’t decorated yet, but it got decorated later that day…

Once again, I wish you all a Merry Christmas!
