“Hong Kong has something for everyone – cultural immersion for solo travellers, the best theme parks for families, and an effervescent nightlife for groups of friends. All of this is supported by excellent airport facilities and infrastructure making the travel experience seamless,” said Rakesh Raicar, general manager for South Asia, Middle East and Africa, Cathay Pacific.

“As part of the relief package for Hong Kong’s aviation industry during the pandemic, AAHK provided liquidity support to the home-based carriers in 2020 by sponsoring air tickets in advance. The air tickets will be used to promote traffic recovery when the pandemic subsides. Hong Kong has opened up and we are eager to welcome visitors from different parts of the world,” said Vivian Cheung, Chief Operation Officer of Airport Authority Hong Kong (AAHK).
