As part of the "World of Winners" campaign sponsored by Airport Authority Hong Kong (AAHK), where 500,000 free tickets are being offered to global visitors, Cathay Pacific will be offering 80,000 round-trip air tickets to Hong Kong to residents across Southeast Asia. Of this, up to 17,400 tickets will be for Thailand residents. The initiative is in support of Hong Kong Tourism Board's (HKTB's) "Hello Hong Kong" campaign to welcome tourists back to the city, now that travel restrictions have been lifted.
In Southeast Asia, the campaign will be launched in phases, beginning first with Thailand, Singapore and the Philippines on 1, 2 and 3 March 2023 respectively, and then Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam and Cambodia in stages two weeks later.
Hong Kong's Biggest Welcome to the World
The "Hello Hong Kong" promotional campaign is being rolled out worldwide to send the positive message that Hong Kong is back with signature and new exciting experiences awaiting 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.
