WATCH: Airline surprises passengers upon their arrival at Leeds Bradford Airport

An entire flight of passengers were left speechless yesterday when they got off their flight.

To mark International Random Acts of Kindness Week taking place from 9-13 February, greeted each passenger on flight LS272 from Alicante, Spain, landing at 16.30, with a personalised gift.

Gifts were specially wrapped and waiting for the passengers on the luggage carousel when they landed at Leeds Bradford Airport.

The surprise started with a question people were asked when checking in for their afternoon flight from Spain, asking what they had most missed about home.

Whilst the plane was in the air, a team of helpers set to work sourcing and wrapping up gifts to welcome them home with a ‘Random Act of Northern Kindness’ in just three hours.

“We couldn’t believe it when we got to the luggage carousel”

Surprised passengers.

Newlyweds Mr and Mrs Coupe, flying back home to Bradford from their honeymoon, said: “We couldn’t believe it when we got to the luggage carousel and all these gifts were there before our bags, it was so unexpected, we’re just thrilled with our presents.

“You’re always a little bit sad coming back from holiday, and even more so from honeymoon, so this brightened us all up no end.”

Steve Heapy, CEO of and Jet2holidays said: “Seeing the faces of the passengers as they spotted the gifts was heart-warming. And kindness can be contagious – so we’re hoping this will have a ripple effect – in fact the best acts of #Jet2kindness which have come to our attention this week will receive free flights.”
