TAIPEI–Travelers from Taiwan looking to visit Tokyo to see the cherry blossoms will be able to grab cheap flights if they can manage to grab one of the one-way tickets being sold by Tigerair Taiwan for just NT$999 (US$30.8).
The promotional tickets will only be available on Wednesday, said Tigerair Taiwan, a joint venture between Taiwan’s China Airlines (CAL) and Singapore’s budget airline Tiger Airways.
With tax included, a round-trip ticket from Taiwan to Tokyo will be priced at around NT$3,600, the low-cost carrier said.
The announcement comes amid the cherry blossom season in Japan, which draws crowds of Taiwanese tourists seeking to enjoy the sea of cherry blossoms.
Travelers can choose to depart from Taipei to Japan’s Narita or Haneda airports, or depart from Kaohsiung to Narita, the airline said.
The promotional tickets will be valid from April 7 — June 30, it added.
