In support of Hong Kong Tourism Board’s (HKTB) Hello Hong Kong campaign to welcome tourists back to the city, flag carrier Cathay Pacific is giving away 80,000 round-trip air tickets to Hong Kong.
This Cathay Pacific promotion is open to South-east Asian residents who are also airline members, with activities to be rolled out in phases, beginning with Thailand, Singapore and the Philippines on March 1, 2 and 3, 2023 respectively, and then Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam and Cambodia in stages two weeks later.
Cathay Pacific’s ticket giveaway joins Airport Authority Hong Kong’s (AAHK) World of Winners campaign, which puts 500,000 free tickets to Hong Kong up for grabs. This is open to markets around the world.
To participate, Cathay Pacific members will need to visit the campaign website, sign in with their membership details, and answer three questions correctly.
Dominic Perret, Cathay Pacific’s regional general manager for Southeast Asia, said the campaign would boost Hong Kong’s destination promotions in the region.
Vivian Cheung, Chief Operation Officer of AAHK, said: “As part of the relief package for Hong Kong’s aviation industry during the pandemic, AAHK provided liquidity support to the home-based carriers in 2020 by sponsoring air tickets in advance. The air tickets will be used to promote traffic recovery when the pandemic subsides.
“Hong Kong has opened up and we are eager to welcome visitors from different parts of the world. Various new services and facilities are ready at HKIA (Hong Kong International Airport) and we are looking forward to providing passengers a brand new airport experience.”
