Greater Bay Airlines will kick off its ticket giveaway for travellers from Taiwan to Hong Kong in July. The airline will distribute a total of 1,500 economy round-trip tickets to passengers from Taipei to Hong Kong as part of two campaigns: lucky draws and a buy-one-get-one-free offer. The ticket giveaways are part of the Hello Hong Kong initiative to welcome tourists back to the city.
How to get the tickets?
Travellers from Taiwan can avail the buy-one-get-one-free offer by purchasing their tickets from three Taipei-based travel agents – Cola Tour, EZTravel, and Martin Travel – between July 3 and August 25. Tickets will be sold under this offer on a first-come-first-served basis.
The carrier will also hold two lucky draws to give away a total of 200 tickets from Taipei to Hong Kong, the details of which will be revealed at a later date.
How long are the tickets valid for?
Tickets bought as part of the buy-one-get-one-free offer are valid for travel dates between July 3, 2023 and April 30, 2024, with the exception of the February 13-18, 2024 period.
Passengers do not have to pay the airfare on their tickets, but they must bear the costs of any applicable taxes, fees, and surcharges.
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, Dubai, India, Bangladesh and Nepal, as well as Australia and New Zealand to the SAR have been awarded.
Cathay Pacific recently concluded its ticket giveaway to visitors from Japan, while its low-cost subsidiary HK Express ended its Japan campaign early as the tickets sold out. Hong Kong Airlines ran a two-day giveaway campaign for tickets from the island national to Hong Kong at the end of June, and currently has a Special 2-for-1 Offer on airfares from the country.
