HK Express will begin its free ticket giveaway for travellers from Hong Kong to 19 destinations in five countries in Asia. The airline will distribute 21,626 economy round-trip tickets to passengers from Hong Kong to cities in Japan, South Korea, Thailand, Vietnam, and Taiwan from July 11-24.

Tickets will be awarded to travellers from Hong Kong on a first-come-first-served basis to the following cities:

  • Japan: Tokyo (Narita and Haneda), Osaka, Fukuoka, Nagoya, Takamatsu, Kagoshima, and Okinawa
  • South Korea: Seoul, Busan, and Jeju
  • Thailand: Bangkok (Suvarnabhumi), Phuket, and Chiang Mai
  • Vietnam: Da Nang and Nha Trang
  • Taiwan: Taipei, Taichung, and Kaohsiung

How to get the tickets?

To be eligible for the tickets, passengers who ordinarily reside in Hong Kong aged at least 12 years old should visit the HK Express campaign page, starting 10.30am on July 11. Participants must then book their tickets, and if they are successful, they will get a passenger name record (PNR) and a confirmation email from the airline.

How long are the tickets valid for?

Winners must use their tickets to book their travel between August 1, 2023 and 31 May 2024. They do not have to pay the airfare on their tickets, but they must bear the costs of any applicable taxes, fees, and surcharges.
