Japan Airlines offers 50,000 direct flights to less-visited cities

Japan Airlines has announced it is offering 50,000 free round-trip flights from Tokyo and Osaka to four mystery destinations in Japan during the period of the Tokyo Olympics, the company said.

The contest is being held along with Your Japan 2020, a project that aims to promote affordable travel throughout Japan during the Games to showcase lesser-visited parts of the country.

The trips will be good for travel between July 1st and September 30th, meaning winners will be able travel before or after the Olympics.

The campaign is expected to launch in late February.
