Korean Air to create ‘Skypass Forest’ in Mapo-gu, Seoul

Signed a business agreement with Mapo-gu, established in the forest of Gyeongui Line
Reinforcement of ESG management such as SKYPASS member participation projects

Korean Air signed a business agreement with Mapo-gu, Seoul on October 22 to create a ‘SKYPASS forest’.

The SKYPASS forest will be built within the linear forest on the Gyeongui Line. The Gyeongui Line linear forest is a form of connecting a forest road to the cut off Gyeongui Line site in Mapo-gu.

In particular, Korean Air will create a SKYPASS forest with SKYPASS members. It is a part of the GREEN SKYPASS project in which Korean Air SKYPASS members directly participate in the creation of eco-friendly forests for climate change prevention and carbon neutrality. In the Green SKYPASS project, when SKYPASS members use their mileage to purchase award tickets or logo products, Korean Air raises funds in proportion to the purchases. The funds will be used for eco-friendly purposes, such as creating a SKYPASS forest. Details on how to participate will be announced on the Korean Air app and website when air travel consumption recovers.

Meanwhile, Korean Air plans to continue its efforts to reduce carbon and respond to climate crisis by devising various ways to help eco-friendliness in connection with the use of mileage by SKYPASS members and actively practicing ESG management.
