Flight passengers disembark to major surprise

Throughout the whole day 17 flights landed with every single passenger receiving a hamper.

If you ever have waited for luggage at an airport, you know the anxious feeling in your stomach when the siren goes off and the carousel begins moving.

Your only concern is that the airline you flew with did not lose your luggage.

But for around 2 500 lucky flyers who landed at Lanseria International Airport on Friday 12 December, a pleasant surprise awaited them as they stood waiting to collect their luggage at the airport carousel and embark on their next destination.

As passengers moved down the isle after landing, numerous enthusiastic employees of Donna Karen New York (DKNY), one of the most popular fragrances in South Africa, surprised them with a special Christmas hamper as part of their gesture to spread some festive season cheer.

Tineal McFadyen from DKNY Kyalami Boulevard said they wanted to do something different for the holiday period.

“This is truly a nice surprise and the last thing you expect to receive at an airport is a free perfume hamper. This has been a tough year for South Africans and experiencing how so many people react to such a great surprise is really rewarding for us.”
