Will you be one of the lucky travelers to snag a free flight?

Japan Airlines is giving away 50,000 free round-trip tickets to international visitors next summer. But don’t expect to be jetting off to the country’s capital.

In an effort to diversify tourism during the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, Japan Airlines is giving away trips to lesser-visited but equally beautiful and enriching cities. Moreover, winners of the free flights will not get to choose their destination.

As stated on the airline’s website, when contestants send in their application form, they will see a list of four possible destinations where they could be sent. The dates of travel will overlap with the Olympics and the period of travel will run from July 1 to September 30.

If submitting an application, you must include the city from where you will be departing, the day, the number of people traveling (can be for groups of up to four) and what time of day you wish to depart.

Successful applicants will receive an email within three days, letting them know where they’re going.

In order to enter though, applicants must be members of the Japan Airlines loyalty program (JAL Mileage Bank). The contest is also only open to those registered with the program in a country outside of Japan.
