Description: JACKSON HOLE, WYOMING, DECEMBER 20, 2003 TO JANUARY 3,
Kris Kringle, d.b.a. Santa Claus, got the green light today from
the US Department of Transportation (DOT) to engage in air travel
to various points throughout the United States the night of Dec.
24-25. An order granting a flight certificate and signed by U.S.
Transportation Secretary Norman Y. Mineta finds that Santa Claus is
"exceptionally fit, joyfully willing and uniquely able to engage in
the interstate air transportation for which he has requested a
certificate." The Secretary added that Santa has a 100 percent
on-time arrival record, having never failed to deliver all of his
toys by Christmas morning.
