More Airlines Announce "We Love HK" Campaign Offers

02 May 2003

More airlines today announced special offers as part of the "We Love HK" campaign to help Hong Kong's economy get over SARS as evidence emerges that the drive has triggered a surge in spending at travel agents hotels, restaurants and stores.

Air Canada is offering 500 tickets to Vancouver and Toronto for $3,000 and $4,000 respectively and Finnair is offering 200 tickets to Bangkok at $900.

Air New Zealand today became the 12th airline to enlist in the campaign with an offer of 500 return tickets to Auckland for $3,000.

Closer to home, near 40 taxi associations have offered their enthusiastic support to the programme. With immediate effect, taxi receipts will also count to proof of having spent $1,000 to qualify for special deals.

"The taxi trade fully supports 'We Love HK' campaign because it is a win-win situation," says Ms Miriam Lau, Lego Member of the Transport Constituency. "It will bring more rides to the trade and citizens can make more spendings."

Business across Hong Kong has reported an upturn in business. According to the Travel Industry Council, over 200 local tours were booked on the first day on the campaign ¡V more than 6-fold increase on the normal local tour booking business. The Council expects that a similar number of tours will be snapped up by the following weekends.

Merchants who would like to take part can simply download the campaign logo from the website (www.welovehongkong.com) and make offers on their own. Logos should be displayed at their shops. The website contains full details of the various offers.

A programme hotline (1836 168) has also been set up to answer public queries. The hotline runs from 9am to 5pm on a daily basis, courtesy of PCCW.

The "We Love HK" campaign is initiated by the Tourism Coalition of Hong Kong, which includes the Board of Airline Representatives, Federation of Hong Kong Hotel Owners, Hong Kong Hotels Association and Travel Industry Council.
