Is it good English to say "Flight tickets raffle", meaning an airline that raffles tickets for its flights? How can it be said in proper English?

Thank You

I am not sure I want to fly on an airline that holds raffles.

"Airfare" would be the way to describe it. They are raffling off airfare.

That doesn't work in BrE. The prize is the ticket, not the fare.

You wouldn't describe a winning prize package as something like "airfare, rental car and hotel"?

Not unless they were going to give you the money rather than the acctual ticket.
