Hello Hong Kong: How To Get The Free Airline Tickets, Vouchers, Gifts [UPDATED]

Anjali Muthanna

Hong Kong has dropped all of its Covid-19 restrictions and is welcoming visitors to experience everything the city has to offer — from dim sum and street markets , to hikes and beaches . Read on to find out how you can win free airline tickets to and from Hong Kong, as well as complimentary drinks , cash vouchers , and other goodies.

What is Hello Hong Kong?

The government recently launched Hello Hong Kong, a promotional campaign to encourage tourists to visit the city. The biggest draw of the campaign is the giveaway of more than 700,000 free airline tickets to and from Hong Kong. It’s important to note that only 65% of these tickets will be given to travellers , while the rest are reserved for government bodies to promote tourism in the city.

The tickets will be for round-trip economy flights on four Hong Kong-based airlines: Cathay Pacific, HK Express, Hong Kong Airlines, and Greater Bay Airlines. Travellers will only have to pay the taxes, surcharges, and fees that apply to the tickets. There are other incentives for visitors, such as welcome drinks, cash vouchers, and gifts.

How can tourists get their free tickets?

Tourists will get 500,000 free tickets , which the airlines will distribute in different ways: buy-one-get-one-free promotions, lucky draws , competitive games , or on a first-come-first-served basis .

The campaign is called the “World of Winners” campaign, and those interested in getting these tickets should visit the airline websites to check when the offers kick off and subscribe to the newsletters to get reminders:

  • https://flights.cathaypacific.com/en_HK/offers/world-of-winners.html
  • https://www.hongkongairlines.com/en_HK/readysetgo/main
  • https://wow.hkexpress.com/jp/en-jp/
  • https://www.greaterbay-airlines.com/hk/en/offers/promotions/World-of-Winners-Tickets-Giveaway-Campaign.html

When can tourists get these free tickets?

The ticket giveaways will run from March 1, 2023 till September 2023 . They will be distributed to travellers from different regions based on the pre-pandemic pattern of visitors to Hong Kong. Here is the schedule of when the tickets will become available to tourists:

  • March: Southeast Asia (Thailand, the Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam, Indonesia, and Cambodia)
  • April: Mainland China
  • May: Europe (The UK, Germany, Switzerland, France, and Spain), North America (the US and Canada), Australia, New Zealand, and Asia (Israel, the UAE, India, Bangladesh, Nepal, and South Korea)
  • June: Japan, South Africa, and South Korea
  • July: Taiwan
  • September: Mainland China

Cathay Pacific

Cathay Pacific was the first airline to announce its giveaway schedule. It distributed 80,000 tickets to visitors from seven different countries in Southeast Asia , starting March 1 . Residents of these countries had to either be a Cathay member or sign up for free membership on the airline’s website. They were then required to answer three questions correctly and the fastest to do so were eligible for the tickets.

In April, Cathay Pacific organised a lucky draw campaign to distribute tickets to tourists from Mainland China and the Greater Bay Area , with tickets to Hong Kong for Mainland China visitors from Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu, Xiamen, and other Mainland cities except the Greater Bay Area ( read the latest announcement ), and tickets to overseas destinations via Hong Kong International Airport for travellers from the Greater Bay Area ( read the latest announcement ).

In May and June, Cathay will give away free tickets from various destinations, including:

Hong Kong Airlines

Hong Kong Airlines runs a Click & Go campaign by which they give tickets away to participants on a first-come-first-served basis. Each traveller can only win one ticket , which can only be used for a trip that is between two days and seven days long . Passengers aged below two years old are not eligible for Click & Go tickets, while those between two and 12 years old must be accompanied by an adult. The tickets can only be used for specific travel dates and are also subject to blackout dates.

  • South East Asia: Hong Kong Airlines began its participation in the Hello Hong Kong campaign in March when it distributed 6,000 free round-trip economy tickets to Hong Kong from three cities in Southeast Asia: Bangkok, Hanoi, and Manila .
  • South Korea : In May, the carrier announced that travellers from Seoul could win 2,200 tickets to Hong Kong by participating in Phase 2 of its Click & Go campaign from May 17-19. The airline also kicked off a Special 2-For-1 Offer for round trips to Hong Kong originating in Seoul.
  • Japan: The airline held a two-day campaign to give away free tickets from Japan to the SAR from June 27-29 for passengers from Tokyo, Osaka, Sapporo, Okinawa, Fukuoka, and Nagoya . There is also a Special 2-For-1 Offer for tickets from Tokyo, Osaka, Okinawa, Fukuoka or Nagoya to Hong Kong.
  • Taipei: Hong Kong Airlines gave away 1,100 free tickets from Taipei to Hong Kong from August 29-31, for travel dates between September 1, 2023 and March 24, 2024, except for blackout dates from September 28- October 9,2023, and February 7-14, 2024.

The carrier is currently running a Click & Go campaign by which 15,800 visitors from Mainland China — departing from Shanghai Pudong , Nanjing , Hangzhou , Shanghai Hongqiao , Chongqing , Beijing Daxing , Haikou , Sanya , and Beijing — to Hong Kong can win another round of free round-trip economy tickets. Participants who successfully book their tickets must use them for travel dates between September 12, 2023 and March 24, 2024, for travel periods lasting between two and seven days.

Budget carrier HK Express began its campaign in late June 2023 with a giveaway for visitors from Japan. It gave away 14,900 tickets from June 26-July 9 on a first-come-first-served basis to Japan residents from Tokyo (Narita and Haneda), Osaka, Fukuoka, Nagoya, Takamatsu, Kagoshima, and Okinawa to Hong Kong.

The airline also distributed more than 24,000 tickets to Mainland Chinese residents to travel to 19 cities in Asia via Hong Kong from August 29-September 11 . The destinations included cities in Japan, South Korea, Vietnam, Taiwan, and Thailand.

Greater Bay Airlines

Greater Bay Airlines ran two lucky draw competitions to give  Korean passport holders   aged over 19 years old  travelling from Seoul the chance to win  200 round-trip tickets to Hong Kong . The campaign for the first 100 tickets ran from  May 16-31 , and the giveaway for the second lot of 100 tickets took place from  June 10-30 .

Passengers can also avail a buy-one-girl-one-free offer on round-trip tickets between Seoul and Hong Kong purchased from  select travel partners .

The carrier kicked off its  ticket giveaway for travellers from Taiwan to Hong Kong  in July. The airline is distributing a  total of 1,500 economy round-trip tickets  to passengers from  Taipei to Hong Kong  as part of two campaigns:  lucky draws and a buy-one-get-one-free offer . Passengers can register for three rounds of lucky draws until September 28 in which they stand a chance to win 100, 50, and another 50 tickets respectively.

How can Hongkongers get their tickets ?

Hong Kong residents began getting 80,000 free airline tickets from July 2023 . Three city-based airlines have been giving away tickets to SAR residents to travel from Hong Kong to various destinations across Asia.

The distribution drive began with the HK Express campaign in which the airline gave free tickets to travellers from Hong Kong to 19 destinations in five countries in Asia , from July 11-24. There were 21,626 tickets available on a first-come-first-served basis to go to:

  • Japan:  Tokyo (Narita and Haneda), Osaka, Fukuoka, Nagoya, Takamatsu, Kagoshima, and Okinawa
  • South Korea:  Seoul, Busan, and Jeju
  • Thailand:  Bangkok (Suvarnabhumi), Phuket, and Chiang Mai
  • Vietnam:  Da Nang and Nha Trang

In late July, Hong Kong Airlines revealed that it would distribute free tickets to SAR residents for international travel in three rounds. In Round 1, the carrier will give 6,800 tickets for Hongkongers to Osaka, Chongqing, Bali, Sapporo, and Shanghai Hongqiao on July 24 on a first-come-first-served basis.

Hong Kong Airlines followed this up with a second round of free tickets for Hongkongers. The carrier also gave 9,800 tickets for Hong Kong residents to travel to Bangkok, Sanya, Beijing Daxing, Hangzhou, Nagoya, Nanjing, and Seoul on August 7 . It will conclude its distribution drive for Hong Kong residents this month during an in-person promotion for 1,000 free tickets on August 26 and 27, and an online campaign for 8,500 tickets from August 21.

The airline recently revealed that it will begin another Click & Go campaign on October 17 for Hong Kong departures on designated routes on a first-come-first-served basis. No other details have been revealed as yet.

The low-cost carrier will give tickets to passengers as part of a buy-one-get-one free offer, from September 18-30 . The airline will give tickets from Hong Kong to six destinations in Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam, but has not yet revealed details about how passengers can book these tickets.

There were also 60,000 tickets distributed to encourage residents to get their Covid-19 vaccinations in 2021, and there will be additional tickets for travellers from the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area.

Hello Hong Kong Food Tour: local eats you’ll be coming back for!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I woke up bright and early to meet my lovely guide in Sheung Wan, and I was told not to eat breakfast as there was going to be a lot on offer! With two more guests joining us, Laura took us for dim sum at one of HK’s oldest and most ‘local’ dim sum joints, where trolleys still brought dishes out to tables. These traditional dim sum houses are fast fading and being replaced by waiter service, so this brought back great memories of growing up in HK in the 80s when these restaurants were abundant. We were encouraged to try as many dishes as we wanted, taking any that took our fancy as Laura explained the history of the restaurant, and dim sum in the region.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

After having quite a few traditional dishes including dumplings, rice rolls and buns (I was starting to fill up fast!), we walked through the back streets of Sheung Wan. As we passed the traditional medicine and food shops, Laura explained the history of the area and some of the established family-run shops.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

As we made our way into Soho via the market around Gage Street, we stopped at Hong Kong’s best-known noodle shops, famous for wontons and beef brisket noodles. We each had a bowl as Laura talked about traditional egg noodles and what to look for, slurping happily as we watched a chef making them by hand in the corner.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This was my favourite dish so far, and Laura’s hilarious tale of the shop’s family history made this a particular highlight on the tour!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

As we made our way on the tram, Laura pointed out the various landmarks (great for tourists!), and we stopped off in the heart of busy Wan Chai at an old BBQ meat restaurant. The owners greeted Laura like an old friend and ordered a plate of roast duck and BBQ pork for us to share.  Even though I felt very full at this stage, I couldn’t help myself… The meat was deliciously tender and sweet, the bowls of rice soaking up the sauces, and I was in meat heaven!

Our final destination was a bakery made famous by their egg tarts. As we sat on the roof of a beautiful, old Wan Chai building munching on our egg tarts, I looked over the streets of the city I love so much and felt great contentment at a morning very well spent.

The problem is that there are no flight dates available from end of April 2025. I tried contacting BA customer service but they were less than helpful and 1 told me to just wait and book flights a week before travel and the other one just told me to check the rules on the website. I think the rules are that I can book the cities I want to fly to and change the dates when needed without charge by calling the airline . Has anyone experience with Oneworld and am I correct in thinking I can book the first few flights on the correct dates we want to fly and just get the dates changed on the other flights when they become available?

Thanks in advance for any advice/help.

Yeah, 15 including the ‘overland’ (which you have to count) so you have one spare.

Understand about the route to JNB, I had to make a couple of similar decisions (partly as I booked with BA and some due to time constraints) only using QR is a much better J product and from an FF point of view, if that’s a goal, more TPs and Avios if you are in BAEC.

Honestly, no need to book with BA, go with the AA RTW desk, just need an overwater leg with them which would be PHL to AMS.

You’d need to go via LHR or DOH again, but there may not be any D class availability, which you need to book into for a xDONEx ticket, but as I said, the OneWorld Tool is rubbish, I would not trust it personally.

I can see lots of D availability, via Expert Flyer (a very useful tool to have for a RTW) , on the 9th Jan with both QR and BA for OSL> JNB via DOH or LHR (and AY and others as codeshares) so thats why I don’t trust the tool tbh.

Hopefully ibgardyloo, who is the real RTW expert on TA (also a moderator on FT), will be along later to share some few pearls of wisdom and expertise.

Thanks for your advise,I'll have a look at Expert Flyer.

A few things, which I'm going to number more for my benefit than others'...

1. The Oneworld online tool is useless and is a source of more misinformation than probably any other source, possibly excluding a few British Airways agents. [/cynicism]

2. The base price for a DONE5 RTW ticket (business class, 5 continents) starting in the Netherlands is EUR 8099. The same ticket with travel beginning and ending in Norway has a base price of EUR 5794, a difference of EUR 2305. You can fly in an hour or two from London or Amsterdam to Oslo for a hundred quid, so the savings are rather obvious.

3. You can indeed fly from Oslo to Joburg via Doha. The Oneworld online tool hiccups when the first airline in a proposed route is Qatar Airways (so what else is new) but it's a perfectly acceptable route. While on a map OSL-xDOH-JNB looks like a longish detour, in terms of time it's not a lot different from OSL-xLHR-JNB given actual flight timing. An extra hour or so in total journey time that saves a couple hundred quid? Works for me.

4. The AA RTW desk is the gold standard (not perfect, by any means, but the best by far) for booking Oneworld RTW tickets. Use Skype or some other VOIP to talk to them. As stated, AA generally requires that one transoceanic segment be on an AA-coded flight . This can either be AA "metal," i.e. the actual plane , or it can be on a codeshare flight carrying an AA flight number but actually using another airline's plane . In your case the only applicable part of the itinerary that would work for this is the final transatlantic crossing. AA codeshares with Iberia on flights to Madrid, with Finnair to Helsinki, and of course has many of its own flights to various European destinations. You'd still need to end in Norway before 12 months from the first flight , but you could "stop over" in many places in the interim.

5. You might think about dropping Bogota from the RTW ticket and purchasing a separate return ticket to/from BOG outside the RTW. Doing so would drop the RTW from a 5-continent ticket to a 4-continent one (Europe, Africa, Asia, North America) which would drop the ex-Norway base price from EUR 5794 to EUR 5074. This would also save at least two, maybe more, flight coupons (i.e. eligible flights ) for use elsewhere. You can fly return from Miami to Bogota (in economy) for US$250 or around $700 in business (for a 3 hour flight - necessary?) so you'd still be money ahead.

6. Date changes SHOULD be free, but some of the airlines (BA, Qantas) will try to sneak in additional fees. This is another reason I'd try to ticket through AA if possible.

I'll stop here. I know it can sound complicated, but fair warning - these products are addictive. Where to next?

And yes, travel is so addictive, a year sounds long but we still can't fit in even half of where I want to go or see.

Unfortunately my travel partner only has a 1 year sabbatical from work so we can't travel for longer then that.
