Cathay Pacific will kickstart its free ticket giveaway for travellers from Taiwan on July 25. The airline will distribute 36,090 economy round-trip tickets to passengers from Taipei and Kaohsiung in a lucky draw as part of the Hello Hong Kong campaign to encourage tourists to visit the city. Participants can enter the lucky draw from July 25-31.

How to get the tickets?

The lucky draw is only open to Taiwan residents aged 18 years old and older who have stayed on the island nation for at least 183 days between January 1, 2023 and July 24, 2023.

Passengers who meet these criteria should first sign up as Cathay Pacific Asia Miles members before July 25. Participants must then visit the airline’s campaign page for Taiwan at 12pm on July 25, which is when registrations for the lucky draw will open.

When filling out the form to enter the lucky draw, ensure that the name you’ve used for your Cathay membership matches the name on your travel documents.

How long are the tickets valid for?

Successful participants will be informed via email on August 4, 2023. They will receive an email with a redemption code that they must use to book their tickets between August 30-September 29, 2023.

Winners of the lucky draw can use their tickets for travel dates between August 30, 2023 and August 29, 2024, for a stay period between two days and seven days long. They do not have to pay the airfare on their tickets, but must bear the costs of any applicable taxes, fees and surcharges on them.
