Japan Airlines are giving away 50,000 free round trip flights during the Tokyo 2020 Olympics – The Sun

JAPAN Airlines are giving away 50,000 free round trip flights to tourists during the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

The tickets will be for domestic travel within Japan, to encourage visitors to see other parts of the country during their holiday.

The programme will run from July to September next year, with applications starting from February, according to the Japan Times.

The airline hopes to attract visitors to more rural parts of Japan.

Using their "Random Destination Miles" programme, which was developed with Nomura Research Institute, passengers will be given one of four destinations selected at random.

Tickets will be served on a first-come, first-served basis, so you will have to be quick.

Flights will be available from a number of airports including Haneda Airport, Osaka International Airport and Kansai International Airport.

The initiative also hopes to reduce the number of tourists staying in Tokyo due to an accommodation shortage during the peak travel period.

Fans have already flocked to Japan this year, thanks to the Rugby World Cup.

The country is expecting an influx of tourists for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics – with Sun Sport revealing the top seven Brits expected to win the gold in Japan next year.

The event's opening ceremony could feature flying cars and robots, showing off some of the most innovative technology.

A hotel in Japan lets you stay the night for just 70p – as long as you don't mind being live-streamed the entire time.

A new Nintendo theme park is also opening in Japan next year, with a real-life Mario Kart ride.
