As the world prepares for the upcoming 2020 Olympics this summer, Japan Airlines is making travel within the country this summer even easier by giving away thousands of round-trip domestic tickets to international tourists.

Titled Win a Trip with JAL, the campaign will give away 50,000 round-trip domestic flights to regional destinations in Japan to international tourists from July through September.

The flights will be between Tokyo (Haneda Airport) and Osaka (Osaka International Airport or Kansai International Airport), and travel will begin July 1 and must end by September 30, 2020.

According to the airline, applications can be submitted in late February, and the free tickets will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis.

“When you apply, JAL will show you four possible destinations. Then we tell you which one you’ll go to within three days of your application,” reads the airline’s website.

The Tokyo Summer Olympics will run from July 24 through August 9, giving travellers a chance to explore the country around the Olympics if they choose to do so.

To qualify for 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.
