Hong Kong Airlines will begin the next round of its giveaway of free economy round-trip tickets on October 17 on a first-come-first-served basis, as part of the government’s Hello Hong Kong campaign. The airline will start the first round of its distribution drive by giving away tickets to Bangkok, Seoul, Nagoya, Okinawa, Osaka, Tokyo Narita, Fukuoka, Sapporo and Bali, from 10am onwards on October 17, as part of its Click & Go initiative.
How to win the tickets
Visit the airline’s campaign page at 10am on October 17, choose your destination, and book your ticket. If your preferred travel dates are unavailable, try other dates.
Once you successfully book your ticket, take a screenshot of your itinerary and record your electronic ticket number for future reference. Passengers must be at least 12 years old to avail these tickets.
How long are the tickets valid for?
Tickets can be used to book trips that are between two days and seven days long, for travel dates between October 17, 2023 and March 24, 2024. There are blackout dates for each city during which passengers cannot use these tickets.
Travellers do not have to pay airfare on their tickets, but they must bear the costs of applicable taxes, surcharges, and fees on them. 20kg check-in luggage allowance is included.
