Cathay Pacific Airways has been flooded by calls from the public asking how they can obtain any of the 10,000 tickets that the airline announced it will give away to support Government and industry initiatives to draw travellers back to Hong Kong.
The majority of the tickets have been allocated to sponsor the Hong Kong Tourism BoardÁ?s global campaign, “Hong Kong Welcomes You,” to attract travellers from all over the world.
The HKTB will launch a number of promotional programmes to attract visitors during its special “Welcome Month,” and thousands of guests will be invited to Hong Kong to enjoy a spectacular “Welcome Day” event in mid-August. Details will be announced by the HKTB at the beginning of July.
In addition, about 30 groups of representatives from the international travel trade and media will be invited by Cathay Pacific and the HKTB to see for themselves how life has returned to normal in Hong Kong.
Cathay Pacific, as Hong Kong`s airline, will continue to work closely with the Government and the travel industry to rebuild confidence and Hong Kong and support the development of local tourism.
