Cathay Pacific: Vancouver to Hong Kong Discounted Tickets Contest

Hong Kong

Cathay Pacific is having a contest with the opportunity to 'win a ticket' from Vancouver (or Toronto) to Hong Kong.

The ticket is not free, but it should be deeply discounted. Cathay claims you only need to pay the taxes, fees, and carrier surcharges. A random search for a flight in September shows this amount to be around $440 of the $2400 roundtrip ticket price.

However, back in late March winners of the same contest in Southeast Asia felt that the taxes, fees, and surcharges were more than they were expecting.

Many media outlets been promoting the ticket offer as a 'giveaway' which has probably led people to believe the tickets are free.

In actuality the contest is part of a huge “Hello Hong Kong” tourism campaign announced back in February, involving 500,000 subsidized round-trip airline tickets aimed at luring back travelers after several years of strict pandemic travel restrictions.

How it will work

Registration for the discounted ticket contest is now open and can be found here.

On May 17th at 9 PM EST Cathay Pacific will send out the link to those that have registered, and the tickets will become available on a first come, first served basis.

According to Cathay Pacific: "At time of launch a waiting room will be activated, this waiting room does not guarantee acquisition of tickets, bookings are only guaranteed once payment is made. We expect traffic volumes to be high."

Only one discounted ticket per registered user can be purchased.

    Remember this is only available for one round trip to a maximum of 1,555 trips. So if you are booking for more then one person you will more then likely pay considerably more. CX flights into the fall are quite a bit more then other carriers. Plus these only cover the Canada to HKG portion. No connections allowed on this ticket.

    But if you are flying alone or can manage to get more then one ticket and only want to go to HK. Then this is a good deal.
