In addition the airline is also giving away 20 million Asia Miles in a lucky draw. Ten winners will receive one million Asia Miles each, while another 100 will receive 100,000 Asia Miles. Customers can redeem these for a range of Flight, Travel, Lifestyle and Entertainment awards, and with its new Miles Plus Cash payment option, they can enjoy even greater flexibility in how they choose to use their Asia Miles.
The winner of the exclusive flight around Hong Kong, together with their travel companions, are required to be fully vaccinated. The flight will be operated by fully vaccinated aircrew, and its carbon emissions will be fully offset through our Fly Greener carbon offset programme.
Eligible participants must be Hong Kong Identity Card holders who have been fully vaccinated before the end of August 2021. More details, along with the official Terms and Conditions, will be announced in due course, the airline said in a statement.
The airline also announced that its Hong Kong-based ground employees who get fully vaccinated will each be given two days of vaccination leave. They will also be eligible to win Asia Miles and an array of other goodies, including free Air Travel Bubble flights and staycations.
These incentives follow Cathay Pacific's 'Arm up, let's fly again!' campaign that was launched in April to build awareness about the importance of getting vaccinated.
Cathay Pacific CEO Augustus Tang said: 'We are incredibly grateful to the more than 80 per cent of our pilots and over 50 per cent of our cabin crew who have already booked or received their vaccinations. We hope many more of our employees will follow their example as we all work together to help build an immune barrier in Hong Kong as soon as possible.
'As Hong Kong's home airline, Cathay Pacific strongly believes in the importance of vaccination against Covid-19, which is key to the resumption of regular international air travel and the return to normal life for everyone in Hong Kong.'
