Korean Airlines Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner arriving at Toronto Lester B. Pearson International Airport (YYZ) from Seoul Incheon International Airport (ICN) on a lovely Sunday morning 2019. As the current flag carrier of South Korea, with roots going back to the establishment of Korean National Airlines (KNA) in 1946, Korean Air Lines was founded in 1962 through the nationalization of KNA by the South Korean government. In 1969, 50 years ago, the airline was fully privatized and remains so to this day. Of note, The airline's name was changed from "Korean Air Lines" in 1984 to the modern and well recognized "Korean Air". The logo is a reflection of their national heritage through the red and blue colors of the South Korean flag, also present throughout the livery of their aircraft. The round design also incorporates the yin and yang concept with a white dividing section representing a turning propeller. Celebrating 50 years of flight with a vision to become "a respected leader in the world airline community", a goal to fulfill the "Excellence in Flight" reputation, and, as the "Wings of the People", the future of Korean Air is clearly focused on becoming the 'Wings of the World". Enjoy!
