Jet2.coms Rescued Lions Hit Their New Home.

12th February 2010

Jet2.com successfully touched down at Doncaster Airport yesterday at 12.30pm to deliver its precious cargo of 13 lions on their way to Yorkshire Wildlife Park from their cramped conditions in Oradea Zoo in Romania.

Once landed at the airport Jet2.coms highly skilled team of Ground Operations crew including Andy Stuart, Rachel Downie, Paul Gerrish, Christopher Watson and Andrew Coupe worked tirelessly to ensure the precious cargo was offloaded quickly and most importantly safely!

Following a brief photo-call with the nation’s media looking on the lions were safely transported to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park 5 miles away where they were released into their new enclosure!
