Jin Air, a low cost carrier of Korean Air, has grown rapidly since its inaugural flight in July 2008. The airline is young and exciting, traits reflected in its uniform of jeans and shirt. Jin Air currently operates flights to 3 domestic cities and 27 international destinations. The carrier launched the first long haul route between Incheon and Honolulu in December 2015 and now serves its customers with a fleet of 17 B737-800 and 3 B777-200ER. All maintenance and trainings are carried out by Korean Air and to better utilize the belly capacity, it has commenced cargo services since November 2013.
The Chinese letter Jin (眞) means truth, contains the will of Jin Air to provide true and sincere service. This Chinese letter is used for the actual company name of Jin Air. The Korean pronunciation of Chinese letter (眞) is similar to that of English ‘jean’ and the uniform of Jin Air is a pair of jeans. Jin Air has been using a pair of jeans as the uniform of cabin crew, cockpit crew and ground personnel from the time the company was established, and is described as the symbol of Jin Air. It has something in common with Jin (眞) in that the intent is to approach customers more intimately by wearing a pair of blue jeans and to offer more active and positive service with the eventual purpose of providing sincere service.

Looks like I will be off to Cairns in December to see this arrive.
