Japan Airlines may just have made your journey in Japan cheaper: The airline is giving away 50,000 round-trip domestic tickets for international tourists. But there are caveats.
The “Win a Trip with JAL” campaign is tentatively set to begin in late February 2020 for flights departing on or after July 1, 2020. The routes will leave from between Tokyo (Haneda Airport) and Osaka (Osaka International Airport or Kansai International Airport). Travel must end by Sept. 30, 2020.
The Tokyo Summer Olympics will be held July 24 through Aug. 9, giving travelers a chance to explore the country around Olympics time if they so choose.
Japan Airlines will give the ticket winners four travel destination options within Japan. . More details about the campaign will be revealed in mid-January.

“Win a Trip with JAL” is part of the Your Japan 2020 Campaign, launched in conjunction with the Japan Tourism Agency and the Japan National Tourism Organization. The Your Japan 2020 Campaign aims to give travelers cheaper fares on international and domestic flights, discounted excursions to samurai and ninja hot spots and more.
As for the caveats of the airline promotion:
- You must not be a resident of Japan and have a non-Japanese passport. If you have a Japanese passport, you need to have permanent residence in a different country to access the promotion.
- The promotion is only available for JAL Mileage Bank members not registered in Japan. You can sign up for the program on its website, where it advertises no membership fee.
- Make sure you reserve your flights at least a week in advance of the first flight (and your return flight can’t be longer than 10 days later).
- Seats are limited, and on certain routes, flights and dates, the promotion might not be available.
