CityLink VA Announces the Addition of the BAE 146-300QT


It is that time of the year! Sinterklaas is coming. He traditionally arrives in the Netherlands each year in mid-November (the first Saturday after 11 November) by steamboat from Spain. He then parades through the streets on his horse, welcomed by children cheering and singing traditional Sinterklaas songs. His Zwarte Piet assistants throw candy and small, round, gingerbread-like cookies, called either kruidnoten or pepernoten, into the crowd. The event is broadcast live on national television in the Netherlands and Belgium.

After this national arrival, all towns with a dock usually celebrate their own intocht van Sinterklaas (arrival of Sinterklaas). Local arrivals usually take place later on the same Saturday of the national arrival, the next Sunday (the day after he arrives in the Netherlands or Belgium), or one weekend after the national arrival. In places a boat cannot reach, Sinterklaas arrives by train, horse, horse-drawn carriage or even a fire truck.

And this year the pilots of CityLink are going to help out. We have arranged flights to and from Santander in Spain, to collect the horses of Sinterklaas, his assistents and of course the many presents Sinterklaas brings with him.

You will find the flight information on the website and we did get our present early this year, a brand new Bae146-300 to perform the flights with.

Dank u Sinterklaasje!

Just to complete it all here is the timetable:
9 flights in total.
Where the bulk is going to and from Santander.
From those 9 we have:
