Cathay Pacific will be offering to residents across Southeast Asia, including the Philippines, around 80,000 roundtrip air tickets to Hong Kong as part of the “World of Winners” campaign sponsored by Airport Authority Hong Kong (AAHK) that will give away 500,000 free tickets to global visitors.
Of this, 20,400 tickets will be for residents of the Philippines, Cathay Pacific said in a statement.
The initiative supports the “Hello Hong Kong” campaign of the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) to welcome tourists back to the city, now that travel restrictions have been eased.
In Southeast Asia, the campaign will be launched in phases, beginning first with Thailand, Singapore and the Philippines on March 1, 2, and 3, respectively, and then Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam and Cambodia in stages two weeks later.
The “Hello Hong Kong” marketing campaign is being put out globally to communicate the message that Hong Kong is back and offering trademark and new thrilling experiences to visitors.
An array of enticing welcoming offers from over 16,000 outlets across the city have been put together by the HKTB and the tourism and hospitality sectors to welcome back visitors. Among which, at the initial stage, at least 1 million “Hong Kong Goodies” visitor consumption vouchers will be given out, covering a complimentary welcome drink at participating bars, restaurants, and hotels, or a cash voucher to be redeemed in the transportation, culinary and retail sectors, as well as attractions.
