Once our couriers arrived back in the UK, there were happy reunions for our Greek passengers. In the meantime, little dog Bailey flew back to Greece for an emotional reunion with owner Lynette.

Sweet Terrier Bailey travelled with us to the UK on our October trip from Greece. Owing to a bad back, her owner Lynette had very reluctantly decided to rehome Bailey. Lynette quickly realised, however, that she couldn’t live without Bailey, so asked us to arrange a return trip for her.
Following a veterinary health check, we popped Bailey on a plane to Athens airport, where she was met by our friend Akis, who operates a pet taxi service. He oversaw the cargo handling for Bailey and then delivered her to Lynette’s home, where there was a very excited reunion all round.
