MANILA - Japan Airlines (JAL) is giving away up to 50,000 free round-trip tickets to domestic destinations next year, but with a few conditions. 

Only foreigners who are members of JAL's Mileage Bank frequent flier program registered outside Japan can apply for the promo. 

Qualified travelers also need to fly between July and September 2020, and won't know where they will be flying until 3 days after they apply. 

"When you apply, JAL will show you four possible destinations. Then we tell you which one you'll go to within 3 days of your application," JAL said in a statement posted on its website

Interested travelers can apply as a group of up to four people, JAL said.

The airline said it will release more details about the promo in early January, and will open applications to the ticket giveaway in late February. 

A record 31 million tourists visited Japan last year, and the number is expected to further rise next year with the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics.
