SEOUL, KOREA — Korean Air has announced the release of upcycled name tags and golf ball markers crafted from a decommissioned Boeing 777-200ER aircraft. This is the airline's third wave of environmentally-friendly upcycled products created using retired aircraft.

The South Korean flag carrier had previously launched name tags made from remnants of a Boeing 777-200ER in January 2021, followed by name tags and golf ball markers produced from a Boeing 747-400 in September 2021. These products enjoyed widespread popularity and rapidly sold out.

The latest batch of name tags and golf ball markers have been fashioned from the skin of a disassembled Boeing 777-200ER, bearing the registration number HL7715. The aircraft had completed 11,274 flights to 95 cities worldwide before making its final journey from San Francisco to Seoul Incheon in March 2020.

Fashioned from the aircraft fuselage's exterior, the upcycled name tags and golf ball markers exhibit color variations depending on the fuselage segment utilized. Each item is engraved with the aircraft model "BOEING 777-200ER" and registration number "HL7715", further enhanced by a unique serial number adding to its exclusivity.

Available in either a rectangular or an irregular hexagonal shape, the name tags can be chosen according to the customer's preference. The golf ball marker sets comprise one circular and one semicircular marker.

Constructed from Duralumin, a durable yet lightweight alloy used in aircraft, the products are available in limited quantities—5,000 name tags and 2,000 golf ball marker sets—enhancing their appeal as collectibles.

The new upcycled name tags and golf ball markers can be purchased on Korean Air's e-skyshop. The first 2,000 customers have the option of availing a name tag engraving service for personal name and contact information.

As part of its commitment to Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) activities, Korean Air has undertaken various green initiatives. In December 2022, the airline donated hot water bottle covers made from recycled inflight blankets to those in need. It also launched upcycled cosmetic pouches in February, crafted from retired cabin life vests, with proceeds going to a global environmental organization.

Korean Air reaffirms its commitment to environmental stewardship through its diverse ESG activities, intending to continue its efforts in this area.
