SINGAPORE: Changi Airport kicked off its June holiday season on Friday (May 26) with a performance featuring Hello Kitty and other Sanrio characters to launch the airport's month-long Nordic-themed showcase.

Life-sized dancing versions of Hello Kitty, My Melody, Pompompurin, Gudetama, Cinnamoroll and the Little Twin Stars took to the stage at Terminal 3, in what Changi Airport said was the first time Singapore had hosted so many Sanrio characters together.

The seven characters also hosted a meet-and-greet photo session with fans. They were joined by a Finnish Santa Claus, who made an out-of-season appearance.

The centrepiece of the Nordic showcase is located at the departure hall of Terminal 3, with a Viking ship-inspired gallery. It will also feature cameo appearances from the Sanrio characters, including My Melody in traditional Swedish attire and Pompompurin dressed as a Viking.
