In an effort to keep people entertained in terminals, kids can visit Santa and Mrs. Claus at an interactive kiosk at Terminal 1 and Terminal 3 until Dec. 23. There’s also free gift wrapping stations for anyone buying last minute gifts, however, airport officials are reminding travelers to not pre-wrap anything as all packages are subject to inspection at security checks.
There will also be live carolers performing, stations where flyers can make Christmas ornaments, and a coat check is being offered for $2/day or $9/week, allowing those travelling to warmer places to drop off and pick up their jacket as they head to and from the airport.
