L-R: Vivian Cheung Kar-fay, Chief Operating Officer of Airport Authority Hong Kong ; Daniel Chan, Deputy Director of HK Economic and Trade Office (HKETO) ;and Donald Morris, Country Manager of Cathay Pacific Philippines.

Airport Authority Hong Kong (AAHK) is launching a global air tickets giveaway campaign, “World of Winners”, which will offer 500,000 free tickets in Hong Kong’s major passenger markets for travellers to visit the city and experience its unique offerings.

Distributed in phases by Hong Kong’s three home-based airlines: Cathay Pacific Airways, Hong Kong Express, and Hong Kong Airlines, the campaign is kicking off in March 2023 by giving away some 135,000 tickets in Southeast Asia markets, including the Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam, Cambodia and Indonesia. About 30,000 tickets will be given to residents in the Philippines via the three airlines’ promotional activities starting from 3 March. After the Southeast Asia markets, the campaign will continue in Northeast Asia, Mainland China and other markets.

Tickets given away in the “World of Winners” campaign are all round-trip economy-class tickets. Travellers who get the free tickets will also receive from AAHK’s business partners special offers for hotel accommodation, shopping, and entertainment in Hong Kong.

“Hong Kong has fully opened up and we are eager to welcome visitors from different parts of the world. Travellers visiting Hong Kong are no longer required to have received Covid-19 vaccination, or undergo testing or quarantine upon arrival. And from today wearing a face mask is no longer mandatory in Hong Kong. At Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA), the terminal has been extensively refurbished, with various new services and facilities providing passengers a brand new airport experience,” says Vivian Cheung, Chief Operating Officer of AAHK.

AAHK has spared no effort in improving the airport’s facilities to further enhance passenger experience. Sky Bridge, the world’s longest airside footbridge measuring 200-metre long, offers stunning views of the apron. The luxury shopping zone at Terminal 1 has been renovated, housing over 40 renowned brands and three new iconic duplex stores. Smart technologies have been extensively applied to different aspects of the airport’s service. For example, facial recognition technology is adopted in the entire departure process to provide passengers a seamless and hassle-free departure journey without the need of repeatedly producing documents for checking.

The free tickets were sponsored by AAHK in 2020 as part of a package of relief measures for Hong Kong’s aviation industry during the pandemic. Through the sponsorship AAHK provided liquidity support to the home-based carriers upfront, with a plan for airlines to use the tickets for promoting traffic recovery when the pandemic subsides. HKIA is one of the busiest airports in the world and an international aviation hub, connecting with over 220 destinations worldwide by over 120 airlines. HKIA is also conveniently connected to the Greater Bay Area in Mainland China through land and sea transports.

Klook Powers Through A New Era Of Travel With A Captivating Rebrand

Introducing an all-new end-to-end travel and leisure superapp geared towards joyful moments


The Philippines, March 4, 2022 — In overcoming a major milestone of canceled flights, travel bans, and closed borders, Klook has proven to be at the forefront of its industry. Coming out stronger than ever, the leading travel and leisure e-commerce platform continues to break boundaries with an all-new brand identity. Here to make consumer travel more meaningful and enjoyable, the company launched “Your World Of Joy” to play on joyful moments at the core of travel.

“As we enter a new era of travel, this rebrand is our commitment to bring joy back to our customers who have missed the magic of traveling and be their go-to travel and leisure app at home or abroad,” says Eric Gnock Fah, Chief Operating Officer and Co-founder of Klook.

 A bigger and brighter travel and leisure superapp

The company has distilled the main pain points of what consumers need and want today, and it’s providing experiences that truly incite joy. Klook has shifted gears to focus on domestic travel with the best prices guaranteed for local theme parks, water parks, and zoos. This includes new product offerings such as hotels, resorts, and F&B vouchers —completely bookable through the app.

Bringing even more joyful experiences

Customers can experience Klook across three categories – play, stay and move. The latest offers include hotels and staycations, car rentals, attraction passes, and services, including COVID-19 testing and travel-related insurance—all designed and created for the convenience and enjoyment of modern travelers.

  • Stay+ for an epic stay experience: Stay+ allows customers to purchase room-only offers at competitive rates with bundled experiences, including attractions, local tours, in-hotel services, and more. 
  • Car Rentals to take you anywhere: The company has consolidated one of the most extensive car rental inventory in the Asia Pacific and has seen over 350% year-on-year growth in 2021.
  • Klook Pass for supersized fun: The Klook Pass is an exclusive all-in-one digital pass. It provides customers with savings, convenience, and a one-of-a-kind booking experience.
  • Insurance for peace-of-mind: In partnership with ZA Tech, Klook became the first travel player to roll out a full suite of travel-related insurance on a multi-market level.

While domestic remains the brand’s focus, cross-border travel is also on Klook’s radar. With the reopening of different borders, outbound travel from the Philippines is slowly becoming a reality.


With this, Singapore has opened its borders to Philippine passport holders, and Klook also has been gearing up with new improvements to make the travel experience more seamless and convenient such as:

  • Hotel Options with Klook Exclusive Deals
  • Enhanced Attractions Experience
  • Complete Singapore Food Trip Guide 

 Supersized fun with promos

In line with Klook’s “World Of Joy” campaign, the company wants to spread good travel vibes with exciting promos. Customers can enjoy two exclusive and limited promo codes this March 2022.

  • STAYHAPPY to redeem up to 22% off for local hotels, and resorts with a minimum spend of Php5,000
