This field trip was one they’ll never forget.

A group of 150 school children from P.S. 29 in College Point headed to John F. Kennedy Airport last week and enjoyed an afternoon of holiday fun that included visits from a few celebrities, including the North Pole’s most famous resident.

It was part of Delta Air Lines’ annual “Holiday in the Hangar” event, in which the youngsters boarded a Delta jet inside one of JFK’s hangars that was transformed into a Christmas-themed lounge filled with games, music, treats and crafts.

Celebrities also stopped by to greet the youngsters, including actress Abigail Breslin of “Scream Queens,” the Radio City Rockettes, the Coca-Cola Polar Bear and New York Met outfielder Curtis Granderson (who was joined by the team’s mascot, Mr. Met), New York Knicks legend Walt “Clyde” Frazier and former New York Yankees relief pitcher Jeff Nelson.

Of course, Santa Claus and his elves flew in for a brief visit with the children and handed out gifts to them all.
