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.
This is the first phase of the 80,000 ticket giveaway for passengers from the SAR. All airline campaigns so far have been aimed at tourists to encourage them to visit the city after Covid-19 restrictions were lifted earlier this year.
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, as well as Australia and New Zealand have been awarded.
Greater Bay Airlines began its 1,500 free ticket distribution scheme for visitors from Taipei to Hong Kong this month. The carrier will run a buy-one-get-one-free offer until August 31, and announce the details of two lucky draws for travellers from the Taiwanese capital.
