Cathay Pacific will begin its ticket giveaway for travellers from Japan on June 26. The airline will distribute 12,000 economy round-trip tickets to passengers from Tokyo (Narita), Osaka, Nagoya, Fukuoka, and Sapporo 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 June 26-July 2.
How to get the tickets?
To qualify for the tickets, passengers aged at least 18 years old should first sign up as Cathay Pacific Asia Miles members before June 26. Participants must then visit the airline’s campaign page for Japan at 12pm JST on June 26, which is when registrations for the lucky draw will open. They should fill out the form and submit it, and ensure that their Cathay membership profile name matches the name on their passports.
The winners of the lucky draw will be notified on July 12 via email. When the redemption period for the tickets begins, the winners will receive a redemption code email that they should use to book their tickets.
Winners do not have to pay the airfare on their tickets, but they must bear the costs of any applicable taxes, fees, and surcharges. Successful participants should note that Haneda is not among the airports in this giveaway campaign.
How long are the tickets valid for?
Winners must use their redemption codes within one month of receiving them to book trips within the following nine months (July 12, 2023-April 11, 2024). Tickets can be used for travel periods between two days and seven days long.
Hong Kong Airlines will also conduct its 2,050 ticket giveaway for visitors from Tokyo, Osaka, Sapporo, Okinawa, Fukuoka, and Nagoya to Hong Kong from June 27-29. In addition, the carrier will give discounted round-trip tickets from Tokyo, Osaka, Okinawa, Fukuoka or Nagoya to Hong Kong under its Special 2-for-1 Offer, starting July 4.
Several giveaway campaigns for free or discounted tickets for travellers to Hong Kong from different countries began from March 1, courtesy the Hello Hong Kong and World of Winners initiatives. Tickets to travellers from Southeast Asia, Mainland China, the UK, Europe, South Korea, the US and Canada, as well as Dubai, India, Bangladesh, and Nepal have been awarded. Cathay’s most recent giveaway campaign was for visitors from Australia and New Zealand to the SAR.
