Shalom and greetings all my pals,

Presenting a special Christmas charter flight from ENBR Bergen Airport located at Flesland in Bergen, Norway to EKVG Vágar Airport located 1 mile east of the village of Sørvágur on the island of Vágar bringing workers from Bergen back home to Faroe Islands for Christmas with their families

Passengers boarding this special Christmas charter flight using 737-800SFP with special Christmas livery

Festival Christmas lights have been installed exclusively for special holiday occasion

look at some plane with call sign UKV5097 making final runway approach to runway 17 (you can spot the plane above SAS plane tail

Jetway started to disconnecting and closing its doors

You can see that the jetway is now completely disconnected

Calling the airport control tower requesting for IRF clearance to EKVG

IRF and pushback clearances had been granted and now commencing the pushback

Do not know why the UKV plane aborted the landing and climbed to 6,000ft while the holiday plane was in middle of pushback

Nice tail and sunrise

Holding short of runway 17 awaiting for take off clearance from the airport control tower

Take off clearance granted and now started to enter into runway for take off

Despite being extremely heavily loaded with Christmas gifts, necessity supplies, and food brought abroad by passengers due to the fact it was cheaper to shop in Bergan than it was in Faroe Islands, the plane managed to have powerful take off utilizing its SFP feature and commenced climb to fl340
