With the holidays just around the corner, it’s time to start planning all of those festive dinners and get-togethers! With all of those good times usually comes a few family members from out of town who may or may not know their way around good ol’ TO — especially when it comes to landing at Toronto Pearson Airport.
Because you were so well brought up, you know you’re going to give in to obligation and trek to the airport to meet your fam at the arrivals gate. But is there anything more nerve-wracking, stress-inducing, and unpredictable than driving to the airport in the middle of hectic holiday traffic and crazy weather?
Putting aside some of the usual worries and etiquette mysteries that come along with greeting someone after a long plane ride, timeless questions linger: How many mints is enough before kissing your long-lost significant other? How should you approach giving a warm hug? How do you show excitement through a simple wave? Is the number of flowers you offer directly correlated to that person's length of trip?
All key questions to ponder, which is exactly what UP Express did in their recent The Welcome Committee campaign, where they sent a super honest, enthusiastic, and funny welcome committee to Toronto Pearson Airport to help give unsuspecting individuals a leg up in reuniting with their loved ones!
