Air Korea is now known as Jin Air

Air Korea, the name of Korean Air’s low-cost carrier, has received a new name as the airline has officially unveiled its corporate identity and aircraft livery.

The airline is called “Jin Air/真航空”.

First flight is Seoul Gimpo – Jeju on 17JUL08.

According to the article:


Jin Air, which will start operation of the Gimpo-Jeju route on July 17, made public its image, models of aircraft and cabin crew uniform at an inauguration ceremony held in downtown Seoul Sunday.

The carrier has abandoned the tentative name of Air Korea and adopted Jin Air, which has the same pronunciation as the Chinese character meaning “truth” and “sincerity.” Its slogan is “Fly, better fly ― Jin Air.”

Pursuing “freshness” and “pragmatism,” the budget airline showed unconventionality in many aspects.
