Airline giving away 50,000 free flights

Japan Airlines are giving away 50,000 free round-trip flights to tourists during the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

The tickets will be for domestic travel within Japan to encourage visitors to see other parts of the country during their holiday.

The program will run from July to September next year, with applications starting from February, according to the Japan Times.

The airline hopes to attract visitors to more rural parts of Japan.

Using their "Random Destination Miles" program, which was developed with Nomura Research Institute, passengers will be given one of four destinations selected at random.

 

 

Tickets will be served on a first-come, first-served basis, so you will have to be quick.

Flights will be available from several airports including Haneda Airport, Osaka International Airport and Kansai International Airport.

The airline hopes the competition will encourage tourists to explore more than just Tokyo.

The initiative also hopes to reduce the number of tourists staying in Tokyo due to an accommodation shortage during the peak travel period.

Fans have already flocked to Japan this year thanks to the Rugby World Cup.
