Good news for travellers! Cathay Pacific is giving away 27,314 free round-trip air tickets from Hong Kong starting April 24. The giveaway is a part of the ‘Hello Hong Kong’ initiative under the Airport Authority’s ‘World of Winners’ (WOW) programme.
The government initiated the HKD two billion campaign to boost the pandemic-hit economy. As such, several giveaways have been rolling out over the past few months, including ‘Hong Kong goodies’ consumption vouchers for incoming tourists.

To enter, simply select your city of departure and desired travel destination on the campaign website. Then, register by filling out a form with your name (matching the one in the passport), e-mail address, and phone number (same as Cathay Pacific membership). Winners will receive an e-mail notification on May 3.
The winners’ companions can enjoy discounts as long as the departure date from Hong Kong is between May 15, 2022 and February 10, 2024. Each companion ticket will be reduced by RMB 200 (HKD 288) for international short-haul flights and RMB 400 (HKD 455) for long-haul flights. The flight must depart from Hong Kong and arrive at the same destination as the winners’.
There will be more flight tickets up for grabs as the campaign will roll out more offers for global travellers in May. However, the exact launch period for other regions will be announced in time. Hongkongers must stay tuned as there will be many more giveaways in July. Be sure to check out Cathay Pacific’s website for more information.
