Korean Air introduced the new pet program SKYPETS last week, allowing pets to earn “stamps” on each trip they make and redeem them in the future for free travel. A pet earns a stamp on every internal flight they make in Korea, while international trips will earn them two stamps.

Passengers can register a maximum of five pets (dogs, cats or birds) for the service.

Korean Air isn’t the only company to introduce reward systems for passengers flying with pets, with JetBlue passengers can earn 300 TrueBlue points for every flight they take with a pet in the United States, and Virgin Atlantic has Flaying Paws which rewards passengers with pets 1,000 or 2,000 Flying Club miles.
