Low-cost airline easyJet has enlisted the services of classical musicians to help passengers get into the spirit of Christmas. Members of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Radio France have been serenading passengers at Nice Airport to help bring attention to the airline’s winter UNICEF appeal.

EasyJet has supported UNICEF’s polio campaign since 2012 with its “Change for Good” initiative to raise money to fight polio, a disease that afflicts mainly children and can bring about paralysis within just a few hours.

Seven musicians played traditional French and English Christmas music on two flights between Nice and Paris and in the public spaces of Nice and Paris Orly Airports.
