Japan Airlines Promotion

Airline is giving away 50,000 free plane tickets!!!

It’s very uncommon that airlines hand out free tickets, but amazingly, that’s exactly what Japan Airlines (JAL) is doing! To encourage visitors to travel more widely within Japan, the airline is giving away 50,000 free round-trip air tickets – but there’s a catch.

The flights need to be taken summer of 2020 between July 1st and  September 30th.

The free flights will depart from or return to Tokyo (Haneda) and Osaka (Itami / Kansai) only. That’s to encourage travelers to see less frequent visited parts of Japan and to go outside of the typical Tokyo-Kyoto-Osaka tourist area, which will be especially overcrowded this summer as people travel to Tokyo for the Olympics.

To be eligible for free tickets, travelers must be registered outside of Japan with the flag carrier’s Mileage Bank frequent flier program (joining that program is free of charge).

Applications for Japan Airlines’ giveaway will open in late February but the site is online already. So dont forget to check back in February. This is how it will work:

  • You will have to select which airport you want to fly out of, either Haneda Airport in Tokyo, or Itami or Kansai Airports in Osaka.
  • After selecting the preferred airport of departure, you will be shown four possible destinations within Japan.
  • If you win – assuming you got your application in before they ran out of tickets – you’ll receive an email within three days notifying you of which of the four places you’ll be flying free to.
  • Family and friends traveling together can apply as a group of up to 4 people.
  • You need to have an international ticket to Japan booked for the period, and you’ll need to input the info for your arrival flight when you apply.
  • Applications will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
