Air Busan, a budget carrier unit of Asiana Airlines, is creating various items by recycling old suitcases used by flight attendants.
The company said it had released a new keyring crafted from recycled cases and surf suits.
The keyring is designed after the fin of a whale, an endangered species. Its front was made with flight attendants’ old suitcases and the rear with old surf suits.
Suitcases are one of the essential items given out to flight attendants. They are replaced every two or three years, and are usually thrown away because they are difficult to recycle.
Air Busan plans to sell the keyrings during flights. The profits will be spent on cleaning the ocean around Busan.
