Airline lets passengers fly with Christmas trees

275x250.jpg A German airline is allowing holidaymakers to take their Christmas tree away with them.

Air Berlin has said that up until Christmas Eve passengers can transport their festive trees (of up to two metres) for free.

Bosses introduced the move because they say Germans don't like to be parted from their Christmas trees, even when going on holiday.

Personally we would like to see the photos on the beach of Germans sunbathing next to a fully decorated tree with presents underneath.
A spokesperson for Air Berlin said: "Most of the demand for this comes from our German customers – it seems they can’t bear to be parted from their trees at Christmas.

"After all, it was Queen Victoria’s husband, Prince Albert, who brought the tradition with him to England in the first place!"

To qualify, customers simply need to notify the airline’s call centre at least 24 hours in advance of travel.
