Waiting for your luggage to come around on the airport conveyor belt can be irritating, especially if it takes a long time

However, passengers waiting to claim their baggage at KLIA got a pleasant surprise when beautifully wrapped gifts were going around on the carousel instead

According to MYC!, the lucky passengers came in on flights MH2613 from Kota Kinabalu and MH1 from London, and landed in Kuala Lumpur just four days before Christmas.

The presents on the baggage carousel were not just any random ones however, as each had a name of every passenger onboard both of those flights. 

The gifts were a feature of Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (MAHB)'s 'Let's Go Christmas' campaign

Alongside its partners Malaysia Airlines, Lego Malaysia, Valiram, Dimensi Ekslusif, and Colours & Fragrances, MAHB spread the Christmas joy around by treating the incoming passengers to lavish gifts.

The presents included Lego sets, Michael Kors handbags, and sets from Biotherm, Estée Lauder, and Nars.

To make the occasion even more unforgettable, carollers were there to sing iconic Christmas songs

Father Christmas and several Santarinas also made an appearance to distribute tote bags, cookies, candy canes, and toys.

Speaking about the campaign, MAHB CEO Raja Azmi Nazuddin explained that the company wanted to add "a little extra something" to greet passengers returning home for Christmas

In a report by Free Malaysia Today, Raja said he was happy that the passengers had a delightful time at the airport, and promised that MAHB would continue to enhance the airport experience for travellers.

"Malaysia is going to welcome many visitors for Visit Malaysia 2020 and we are ready to give each and every one of them a fantastic first impression at the airport," he added, as quoted by Free Malaysia Today.
