Lost teddies at Glasgow Bearport

Glasgow Airport is asking the public to paws for a moment and help it reunite lost cuddly toys with their owners.

Every year hundreds of teddies and soft toys lose their bearings when travelling through the Airport. Some have been there fur longer than others but all want to go home to their owners.

21 soft toys have been left behind at the airport - or on flights to Glasgow - in the last three months from two-foot high blue monsters to tiny cuddlies. Somewhere in the world there are 21 children distraught that their fluffy pals aren’t by their sides but they’re waiting for them at Glasgow Airport. A happy outcome is pawssible.


To make sure more teddies don’t go astray, Glasgow Airport is today (Thursday September 21st) introducing a first-of-its-kind Teddy Tag given to any child travelling from the airport with a soft toy. The tags are available at check-in can be marked with the owner’s details.

A spokesperson for Glasgow Airport, said: “We hope the bears have enjoyed spending koala-ty time at the airport, but their owners must really miss them. We hope that somebody will recognise their furry friend and collect them

“We’re just softies really, and we’re doing everything we can to make sure more bears don’t get mislaid which is why we’re introducing our new Teddy Tag. We can’t bear for any more teddies to go missing”.
