When passengers travelling on a Canadian airline arrived at baggage claim, instead of suitcases was everything they wanted for Christmas.

The event was captured on hidden cameras and turned into a video which is quickly going viral.

It shows passengers checking in at Toronto and Hamilton International airports, as a virtual Santa Claus asks them what is on their Christmas wishlists.

Once everyone is aboard, a team of WestJet employees rush out to buy the gifts - which range from the classic undies-and-socks combo, to a flat-screen TV.

Upon arrival at Calgary Airport, the passengers are surprised with the Christmas miracle.

Snow begins to fall, giant toys come to life ... and presents containing their individual Christmas wishes make their way down the baggage carousel.

The big man himself also appears, dressed in the airline's colour, blue. He ends the video with a festive: "Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good flight!"
