Cathay Pacific will be making some changes to Marco Polo Club, its loyalty programme. From 8 December 2017, all Marco Polo Club members will earn more club points in Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon flights across all distance zones in selected fare classes.
Marco Polo Club
Green members, the basic tier of Marco Polo Club, will only need 20 club points instead of 100 to requalify for another year of Green membership. That makes it easier to achieve without having to pay a renewal fee of US$100. I don’t fly often or far enough with Cathay Pacific to go beyond the Green status.
You need to be an Asia Miles member (where you can earn and redeem miles with Cathay Pacific, partner airlines and other lifestyle partners and services) to join the Marco Polo Club (to earn club points for Cathay Pacific benefits). Both Asia Miles and Marco Polo membership share the same member number. There is a joining fee of US$100 for Marco Polo Club. It makes sense to join if you fly on Cathay Pacific a lot.
Green Marco Polo Club members enjoy exclusive club benefits such as priority check-in and boarding, lounge access redemption for just 200 club points or extra-legroom seats redemption. You also earn club points and flight miles when you fly with other airlines in the oneworld alliance, which Cathay Pacific is a member of. The more you fly, the more club points you accumulate which lets you upgrade to Silver, Gold and Diamond status. Every status upgrade comes with more benefits.
Earn More Club Points
Members travelling short or ultra-short haul flights on Cathay Pacific or Cathay Dragon will earn additional five to 10 Club points per sector across most fare classes in all cabins. For flights to Europe and the Americas, earn additional 10 to 15 club points in Economy and Premium Economy. In additional five to 20 extra club points will be awarded to some discounted and promotional fares (S, N and Q booking classes) on almost all routes.
