Korean Air has introduced SKYPETS, a frequent flyer program for pets, where free flights and discounts can be earned.
With the new program, every paid one-way flight which passengers take with their pet will earn stamps that can be redeemed for future pet flights or discounts. Every one-way domestic flight in Korea with a pet earns one stamp, whereas any one-way international flight will earn two stamps.
Six stamps can be redeemed for a 50 per cent discount on the charge for a one-way domestic flight with a pet. Twelve stamps can be exchanged for all pet fees on a domestic flight, or a 50 per cent discount on the fees for an international flight when travelling with pets.
Twenty-four stamps can be exchanged for a one-way ticket on international routes. The stamps are earned when travelling on flights operated by Korean Air, and are valid for three years. The newly-launched Korean Air SKYPETS program is designed to make travelling with pets as stress-free and simple as possible, with pet bookings and requests added to the passenger’s itinerary after registering the pet on Korean Air’s website. Dogs, cats and birds can travel with Korean Air either in the cabin or in the luggage hold, depending on their weight and size.
