Local districts race for Hong Kong Airlines – Hong Kong Trophy and flight tickets; great fares also on offer in celebration of Dragon Boat Festival.

Hong Kong - Hong Kong Airlines is proud to be sponsor of the Hong Kong Race at the upcoming 2018 Hong Kong Dragon Boat Carnival. The three-day event takes place from at Hong Kong’s iconic Central Harbourfront from 22 to 24 June 2018 and will see thousands of the world’s top dragon boat athletes compete in several heart-pounding races.

This year’s race for the Hong Kong Airlines - Hong Kong Trophy will see teams from all districts in Hong Kong compete in this exciting event. In addition to the coveted trophy, each participant of the winning team will be awarded with a free round-trip ticket to any long-haul destination in Hong Kong Airlines’ growing network, including Auckland, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Vancouver. The first and second runner up teams will also win tickets for short-haul flights to popular Asian destinations, including Tokyo, Seoul, Bangkok and Manila, which launched just earlier this month.

Like previous years, the 2018 Hong Kong Dragon Boat Carnival is poised to be a popular event for locals and overseas visitors. This year’s party promises to be livelier and more colourful with great fun, food and entertainment planned for everyone.

To ensure our overseas passengers get some party action, Hong Kong Airlines is delighted to partner with Hong Kong Tourism Board to give away food and beer coupons for visitors to redeem at the Carnival. In the days leading up to the event, passengers who hold a foreign travel document and are checking in for a Hong Kong Airlines flight to Hong Kong will be presented with the voucher on a first-come-first-serve basis. To redeem the free beer and food, visitors simply need to present their travel document and coupon to the designated Tourist Counter at the event venue during the carnival weekend from 22 to 24 June 2018.

As Hong Kong Airlines celebrates the spirit and excitement of this vibrant Chinese festival with the community, the airline will also be offering great fares to a number of popular destinations such as Okinawa, Los Angeles and San Francisco. In addition, current members and new applicants of Hong Kong Airlines’ frequent flyer programme, Fortune Wings Club stand to earn double points for flights booked during the promotional period.

Hong Kong Airlines Chief Marketing Officer Mr George Liu said: “Hong Kong Airlines is proud to call Hong Kong our home, and we are extremely pleased to sponsor the Hong Kong Race this year. The Hong Kong Dragon Boat Carnival is a truly Hong Kong yet global event, aligning with Hong Kong Airline’s DNA. The stage has been set for the world’s top dragon boat athletes to come together and compete in three days of competitive races that promises to thrill, entertain and wow visitors and audiences alike. We can’t wait to have fun with everyone.”
