I have a picture showing someone having some luggage shaking hands with someone else who is greeting him and giving him a welcome back. I want to describe the picture and I wonder what I can call each of them: a person who just came back from a trip and the other who's greeting him at the airport and probably is going to give him a ride back home.
I'm thinking of passenger but that person is not on a trip anymore and I think I can't call him so. Also arrival but I feel it's too general.
For the other person greeting him, the first word was a pick up that occured to me but I'm not sure it's even right but even if it is it doesn't imply greeting or welcoming and it strongly suggest the person is there to give him the lift.
