Traditionally, Eindhoven Air Base opens doors of the passenger terminal for the annual Christmas night celebration for local residents. The Christmas celebration is offered by the Commander Air Base Eindhoven, Colonel Elanor Boekholt-O’Sullivan.

The mixed choir Chant’Oers from Veldhoven, led by Hendrikje van der Linde-Soethout, provides vocal support. Pianist Johan Jansen and the occasional orchestra, led by Tristan de Groot, provide the musical support. The doors of the passenger terminal open at 6.30 pm. The celebration starts at 8 pm. Admission is free and everyone is welcome. Afterwards there is an opportunity to talk while enjoying a cup of coffee with something tasty.
