As passengers waited to board their planes in Portland, Maine - Santa came to the rescue.

A crew member at the Portland Jetport dressed as Santa and then worked to de-ice the planes.

Ice has been a major factor at the airport for cancellations and delays.

Fortunately, Santa's sleigh has a magical "de-frost" feature which allows him to deliver presents - even in below freezing temperatures.
