No, this is not a joke. Japan Airlines hands out really free airline tickets. No fewer than 50,000 places are given away to international visitors. It is part of the "Your Japan 2020" campaign and should encourage tourists to visit other places, not just Tokyo and Kyoto. Of course the promotion coincides with the Olympic Games taking place this year in Japan.

Olympic Games

This year's Olympic Games will be held from July 24 to August 9, 2020. During this period around 10,500 athletes from 204 countries compete with each other in 33 branches of sport. Extra fun are the five new sports that will be added to the program this year: baseball (softball for women), skateboarding, karate, climbing and surfing. The promotion of Japan Airlines is therefore primarily aimed at visitors to the Olympic Games.

Go on a voyage of discovery

It is no surprise that there is a snag. There is never anything free and without ulterior motives. The tickets are only for domestic flights and you cannot choose where you are flying. A kind of Surprise Me. So you must already be in Japan in the period of 1 June and 31 October 2020, but you must live outside of Japan. You must also be a member of the Japan Airlines loyalty program. By the way, it is a return ticket, so that is arranged in any case.

Sign up for Japan Airlines

If you want to and can jump through these hoops, you can sign up. If you want to take advantage of this promotion with more than one person, you must let us know in advance, otherwise you will all be flying in a different direction. Registrations will open from the end of February and full is full. The exact date will be announced later this month. © Offered by JFK Japan Airlines hands out airline tickets
