Korean Air has experienced a 29% year-on-year increase in this year’s first half in the number of passengers travelling with pets.

Korean Air’s SKYPETS programme aims to make the travel experience convenient, memorable and enjoyable for ‘furry and feathered friends.’
Pets permitted are dogs, cats and pet birds, and need to be over eight weeks old.

Pet friendly cabins

The airline said pets are ‘treated with utmost care and attention throughout their journey.’ Pets have their own pet-friendly cabins and professional pet handlers.

“Korean Air is a seasoned expert in taking you and your loved ones, including your four and two-legged best friends to places across the world,” said Young Soo Yoo, Korean Air’s Vice President and Head of Loyalty. “We look forward to welcoming you and your family on our expansive global network.”

SKYPETS is a loyalty programme that allows passengers to collect stamps for each flight taken with their pets. For every flight segment completed with a pet on board, travellers earn a stamp in their SKYPETS passport. These stamps can later be redeemed for exciting discounts and exclusive benefits on future flights with Korean Air.
