Dragonair offers 500 tickets to Taiwan for just HK$ 800

Travel News Asia 6 June 2003

Dragonair is offering 500 air tickets to any of its Taiwan destinations for just $800 as part of the "We Love HK" campaign, a travel industry initiative to boost Hong Kong's economy by stimulating spending. All of the 1,000 air tickets offered by the airline to Phuket for $1,000 and the 1,000 air tickets offered to any of its China destinations for $800 have already been claimed.

"The response to both our Phuket and China mainland offers has been very encouraging," said Andy Tung, Dragonair's General Manager  Marketing & Sales. "In order to continue our support and provide the public with even more choice we are adding tickets to Taipei or Kaohsiung. We hope our efforts will provide yet another boost to the local travel industry."

To be eligible for the Taiwan ticket offer, all an individual has to do is spend at least $1,000 at a local tour company, hotel, restaurant or retail outlet between now and June 30, 2003, and be among the first 500 people to  obtain a voucher from Dragonair Ticketing Office at 46/F., COSCO Tower, 183 Queen's Road Central, Hong Kong from Monday to Friday at 9am to 5:30pm and 9am to 4pm on Saturday. The office will be closed on Sunday and public holidays.

The voucher should then be taken to a travel agent, where it can be exchanged for a return ticket to either Taipei or Kaohsiung in Taiwan. The redemption period lasts from June 9 to July 14. The cost of the ticket is  $800, while the issuing agent will charge a processing fee of $100 and collect the relevant charges. The tickets are valid for travel until August 31, 2003.

The initial $1,000 spend should include either a local tour or hotel package sold by a registered Hong Kong Travel Industry Council agent, and a purchase at a hotel, restaurant or retail outlet in Hong Kong.
