Fly, better fly
Dear Jin Air customers, Sincerely welcoming to Jin Air.

Jin Air, founded in 2008, has grown rapidly and has provided new and exciting travel experiences to thousands since its inaugural flight in July of that year. For example, in Korea's most competitive domestic route (Gimpo to Jeju), Jin Air has enjoyed the largest market share among all low cost carriers (LCCs) during the last three years, and has grown into the most "beloved" and leading LCC in Korea.

Jin Air has especially emphasized on market leadership expanding various routes to Southeast Asia and achived the most Southeast Asian routes of any Korean LCC by the end of 2015. Our energetic airline, as a first in the LCC industry, also is leading the market by introducing medium-large aircraft (the B777-200ER) on the long haul Incheon-Honolulu route.

As we celebrate our 8th year, Jin Air is now ready to take another new leap forward as an industry leader. This year, we will initiate an operational excellance program to ensure that safety remains our number one priority. Jin Air hopes not to merely rest on our existing IOSA (IATA Operational Safety Audit) certification that is part of the Aviation Safety Assessment Program from IATA (International Air Transport Association) and contracting out maintenance to Korean Air but to reinforce our organization by requiring on-going safety education and training as well as other tactics to ensure a safety mindset.

Jin Air will continue to demonstrate our philosophy by providing comfortable travel and new experiences for our customers. Jinis, our flying mates with symbol-like blue jeans, will provide the customer with outstanding service anytime, anywhere, just like 'Genie' of the magic lamp. Jin Air aims to differentiate itself by offering services that cannot be experienced in any other LCC - like the "JINI Plus Seat" that is wider than other economy seats, and in-flight WIFI that features advance content delivery like 'JINI Play'.

We at Jin Air, pledge to live by the spirit of our slogan - 'Fly Better Fly' - and provide a reliable, safe and memorable experience. Once again, I hope that all is well with you and your families and that your home is filled with peace and happiness. Thank you for your ongoing support and trust. Choi, Jung Ho CEO Jin Air
