    For the remaining group of destinations, we sent out the free flight ticket redemption codes on 29 March 2023.

    However, some of our flights to a select number of destinations have not yet resumed. We know you’re very ready to travel, so we’ve made some special arrangements:  

    • If your prize ticket was for Chicago (ORD), you may use your ticket redemption code to travel to New York (JFK) 

    • If your prize ticket was for Colombo (CMB), you may use your ticket redemption code to travel to Perth(PER). 

    • As the Chengdu (CTU) airport is currently under renovation, you can still travel to Chengdu as we’ve arranged for your ticket redemption code to travel to Chengdu (TFU) airport instead  

    The travel period of Johannesburg (JNB) period only starts from 1 August 2023. 

    Tickets are now on a bookable basis either under ‘N’ / ‘M’ / ‘O’ class/ “Essential” fare depending on your destination and are subject to embargo periods and seat availability.
