Just weeks ago, out of an abundance of caution, Santa ordered the Regional Tracking Center for Sector 3 in Iceland to close and to move operations temporarily to Norway. Now it appears the Iceland tracking center will re-open very soon.
“The truth of the matter is that the move to Norway was for safety reasons,” said Elf Roger Star, director of North Pole Flight Command. “The North Pole State Department has been in contact with Iceland authorities, as well as experts in travel, seismic science and volcanos, and flight engineers at the North Pole and together have reviewed the situation thoroughly. We find conditions much different than they were weeks ago. It has been our intentional all along to anchor the tracking of Santa for Santa in Iceland and we want to keep our commitments there. So we’re going back.”
The move will happen as fast as the change to Norway – and it will be a seamless process, once again.
The purpose of the regional tracking centers are to focus on flight operations, Santa tracking, weather monitoring and delivery needs in each sector. Sector 3 will have exceptional support for Santa’s ride again this year.
