(PHOTO: Cathay Pacific) Pacific has jumped into the COVID-19 vaccination incentive game by offering the public a private flight, millions of air miles and offering extra vacation days for employees who get the jab. The airline is offering one winner the opportunity to host a private party on board the airline’s A321neo aircraft and is also giving away 20 million Asia Miles in a lucky draw. 

The winner of the private flight can invite friends and family along, but they too must be vaccinated. The flight will be operated by fully vaccinated aircrew, and its carbon emissions will be fully offset through the Fly Greener carbon offset programme. 

Ten other winners will receive one million Asia Miles each, while another 100 will receive 100,000 Asia Miles. Customers can redeem these for a range of flight, travel, lifestyle and entertainment awards. With the airline’s new Miles Plus Cash payment option, winners can enjoy more flexibility in how they choose to use their Asia Miles. 

Eligible participants must be Hong Kong Identity Card holders who have been fully vaccinated before the end of August 2021. More details, along with the official terms and conditions, will be announced in due course. As a thank you to Cathay’s Hong Kong-based ground employees who get fully vaccinated, the airline will give them two days of vaccination leave. All Hong Kong-based employees will also be eligible to win Asia Miles and other prizes, including free Air Travel Bubble flights and staycations. 

Cathay Pacific Chief Executive Officer Augustus Tang said: “We are incredibly grateful to the more than 80 percent of our pilots and over 50 percent of our cabin crew who have already booked or received their vaccinations. We hope many more of our employees will follow their example as we all work together to help build an immune barrier in Hong Kong as soon as possible. As Hong Kong’s home airline, Cathay Pacific strongly believes in the importance of vaccination against Covid-19, which is key to the resumption of regular international air travel and the return to normal life for everyone in Hong Kong.”
