Two Hong Kong-based carriers – Hong Kong Airlines and Greater Bay Airlines – have started giving passengers from Seoul round-trip economy tickets to Hong Kong, as part of the Hello Hong Kong campaign to attract visitors to the SAR. Hong Kong Airlines has 2,200 tickets to give away from May 17-19, while Greater Bay Airlines will run two lucky draw campaigns in May and June to distribute a total of 200 tickets to visitors from Seoul.
In addition, both airlines are running buy-one-get-one-free offers for tickets between the two cities.
Hong Kong Airlines will extend the Click & Go campaign it began in March for visitors from Southeast Asia to travellers from Seoul. Passengers can get tickets to Hong Kong on a first-come-first-served basis, from May 17-19.
Tickets are valid for a 2-7 day travel period anytime between May 17 and October 26, 2023, except for blackout dates (July 21-August 31, and September 26-October 8). Children under two years old are not eligible for Click & Go tickets, while children aged between 2-12 who win the tickets must be accompanied by an adult on their trip.
The airline will also begin a “2-for-1” ticket offer for round-trip tickets on flights from Seoul to Hong Kong, which will begin on May 23.
Greater Bay Airlines will run two lucky draw competitions to give Korean passport holders aged over 19 years old travelling from Seoul the chance to win 200 round-trip tickets to Hong Kong. The campaign for the first 100 tickets will run from May 16-31, and the giveaway for the second lot of 100 tickets will take place from June 10-30.
To register for both giveaways, participants must:
- Follow Greater Bay Airlines’s account on Instagram, add its KakaoTalk channel, and sign up for its Naver blog.
- Upload screenshots as proof to show that they’ve followed these accounts on this registration form.
- Continue to follow these accounts until the announcement dates.
The winners of the first 100 tickets will be notified via email on June 2, and the results of the giveaway will be posted on the airline’s Naver blog. The recipients of the second 100 tickets will be notified on July 3 via the same platforms.
Winners of the first round of 100 tickets can use them for bookings made from June 2, 2023-February 24, 2024 except for blackout dates (September 28-30, 2023 and February 9-11, 2024).
Passengers can also avail a buy-one-girl-one-free offer on round-trip tickets between Seoul and Hong Kong purchased from select travel partners.
Cathay Pacific’s 10,602 economy round-trip ticket giveaway to passengers from Seoul to Hong Kong is also on until May 22. To qualify, participants must be at least 19 years old and be registered Cathay members. The winners will be announced on June 1.
