Travellers can book tickets by phone, at the airlines’ Tsim Sha Tsui district ticketing office or via travel agent, while terms and conditions can be viewed on the airlines’ websites.

The latest version of the promotion includes a number of the airlines’ recently launched routes to Europe and the Middle East. “The Vantage Pass promotion we have offered in the past has been very well received by the Hong Kong travelling public,” said Liza Ng, Cathay Pacific’s general manager sales, Hong Kong & Pearl River Delta. “In our latest edition, we are delighted to extend the number of destinations to include three of our most recent additions – Tel Aviv, Gatwick and Madrid.”
