CALGARY (660 NEWS) – The story of the lost teddy bear that was found has written its final chapter with a little help from WestJet.

The Calgary-based airline wanted to make sure the furry friend made it back home to Halifax and they had some fun doing it.

Staff at the airline provided the bear with a boarding pass and posed for photos at the check-in gate and inside the plane. Of course, the teddy flew in the premium seats.
