Korean Air Unveils Special Aircraft Livery to Celebrate 50th Anniversary
Korean Air has announced that ten aircraft will display a special emblem and slogan to celebrate its 50th anniversary this year.
The special aircraft livery will depict the number 50 with a plane flying over it alongside the slogan “Beyond 50 Years of Excellence”. The number 50 symbolizes Korean Air’s 50th anniversary and features a stylized taegeuk design. Taegeuk is the iconic mark of the Korean Flag.
The slogan “Beyond 50 Years of Excellence” emphasizes Korean Air’s contributions during the last 50 years to Korea’s airline industry, and also highlights the national carrier’s ambitions to make the next 50 years even better for the company. Employees of Korean Air took part in the design and selection process of the emblem and slogan.
Korean Air will operate a total of ten aircraft with the special livery, two of each of the following aircraft types: A380-800, B787-9, B777-300ER and A220-300, as well as a B737-8 MAX later this year.
Korean Air’s B777-300ER from Incheon to San Francisco was the first plane with the special livery to take to the sky on February 14. The other 50th anniversary-themed aircraft will be added to various global networks of Korean Air, as well as domestic routes, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Korean Air on March 1. The emblem and slogan will be on the side of the ten planes until the end of 2019.
