ABERDEEN AIRPORT – Thousands of Shetland children were left in tears after Loganair officially cancelled Christmas in Shetland.
The tragic news comes after BE6770 was first delayed and later cancelled due to a “technical problem”. Santa had been scheduled to land at Sumburgh at 11:05 to begin his traditional delivery round but will now instead be put up in the Marriott until suitable re-arrangements can be made.
A spokesperson for Lapland Industries said: “Hopefully this is the straw that breaks the camel’s back with Shetlanders and Loganair. Every year we have this same issue. To add to that it’s becoming unaffordable. Santa doesn’t have unlimited budget now-a-days.”
