For the fifth consecutive year, AirTran Airways, a subsidiary of AirTran Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: AAI) , is happy to present its first of three annual Satellite-based Aviation Navigational Tracking Apparatus (S.A.N.T.A.) reports. The following information regarding Santa Claus' yearly international flight is based on data from AirTran Airways' System Operations Control (SOC) center in Orlando:

  • First confirmed satellite data found Santa and his jolly followers as they crossed the Great Barrier Reef on their way to Sydney to deliver presents and do some quick snorkeling. (The reindeer watched.)
  • Data indicates that Santa next headed north, bringing holiday cheer to the beaches of Thailand to dry off before starting his tour of Asia.
  • Santa zipped through Asia in record time, reappearing on the radar as he slowed to admire the architecture in Moscow. He passed through without attempting to land his sleigh on the "onion dome" rooftops.
  • Head reindeer Rudolph led the group south to scatter presents throughout Egypt and Algeria, and then Santa took time out in Kenya for a safari excursion at the Masai Mara Reserve before heading for Europe.
