The holidays are one of the most popular times of the year for travel. Millions of people find themselves passing through airports during the months of December and January in order to visit family across the globe.

If you find yourself flying this holiday season, cross your fingers that you will end up at one of these four airports with beautiful, festive holiday decorations!

Chicago O’Hare International Airport

Chicago’s main airport is one of the most beautiful places that you will find during the holiday season. Here, in Terminal 3, O’Hare hangs up elaborate ribbons and lights that give a magical holiday air to the air travel experience.

Singapore Changi Airport

It should come as no surprise that one of the fanciest airports on Earth goes all out for the holidays. At Changi, you’ll find a massive Christmas tree forest as well as a light show that transforms the airport’s famous central waterfall into a snowstorm!

Munich International Airport

In this German airport, the holiday spirit is alive and well. You will find a 50-foot tall centerpiece tree decorated with 5,000 lights as well as 450 smaller trees decorated with various themes around the airport. Oh, and there’s also a fully functional Christmas market.

Amsterdam Schiphol International Airport

Schiphol also does it big for the holiday season. The biggest Dutch airport not only has a huge variety of lights and Christmas trees, but Santa and a gang of roller skating elves also make periodic visits in the terminals.
