(Local)Cheerleaders Soothe Stranded Passengers at China Airport
According to the Dalian Evening News, Dalian International Airport recently recruited a squad of cheerleaders to perform in the airports main hall to entertain waiting passengers.
Amid a current boom in aviation in China, flight delays are becoming a major sticking point for travelers in the country. Poor weather, restricted military airspace and logistical issues regularly play havoc with airline schedules.
However, the cheerleaders pom-pom routines seemed to have eased the situation. The Dalian Evening News reported that they managed to soothe emotion and alleviate fatigue for more than 5,000 stranded flyers during massive fog-related delays in Dalian last week. It is also a way for the Dalian airport to demonstrate spirit and shoulder social responsibility, said an airport press release.
"The cheerleaders are enrolled in different colleges in Dalian. We hire them on a work-for-study programK The performance is free of charge for passengers, explained an airport official.
