Love is in the air… claim a selfie and a smooch from our pooch

February 14, 2020

Love was most certainly in the air at Gold Coast Airport today, with therapy dogs Ranji and Gary puckering up to offer hugs and kisses to passengers for Valentine’s Day.

The popular duo were manning the airport’s “Smooches from Pooches” kissing booths during the morning – marking the day so anticipated by lovers across the world each year.

Gold Coast Airport Chief Operating Officer Marion Charlton said it was a fun way to mark Valentine’s Day with two of the airport’s most loved team members.

“They say a man’s best friend is his dog, and a dog’s love is unconditional, so we were pleased to get into the spirit of Valentine’s Day,” she said.

“Our therapy dogs, Gary and Ranji, help make the journeys of so many of our passengers, particularly our younger and more nervous flyers, that little bit smoother.

“What better way to show our appreciation for our guests, than to offer them a chance to get up close and personal with our gorgeous dogs?”

Launched in December 2018, Gold Coast Airport’s therapy dog program operates every weekday morning in the terminal.

The program is part of a wider suite of services offered to passengers with a hidden disability.
