Cathay Pacific is consolidating Marco Polo Club and Asia Miles under one elevated Cathay membership program. Members will now have more options to earn and redeem Asia Miles and Status Points, previously known as Marco Polo Club Points.
On Wednesday (August 17, 2022), Cathay Pacific announced the launch of an elevated membership experience with the consolidation of Marco Polo Club and Asia Miles under one Cathay Membership program. Under the new program, members will continue to enjoy the travel rewards they value, along with curated lifestyle offerings and experiences. Cathay has been expanding their lifestyle offerings in payment, dining, shopping, holiday and wellness, and currently has over 800 partners. In the coming months, Cathay members will enjoy exclusive new travel and lifestyle offers and experiences
.In Wednesday’s announcement, Cathay Pacific’s Director – Customer Lifestyle, Paul Smitton, said,
“As a home-grown airline from Hong Kong, we have been connecting our home city to the world and have grown together with our members for more than 75 years. Our world has evolved in the past few years, with changing expectations for travel and lifestyle. We continue to listen to our members and to invest in new experiences to help them move forward in life.
“We wanted to make it easier for members to get the most out of Cathay. That’s why we have simplified the programmes and evolved our membership to provide more benefits and choices that elevate our members’ lives, both on the ground and in the air, keeping everything they know and love about Cathay whilst innovating for the future. We want to thank our community of over 12 million members for their ongoing loyalty and support over the years.”
To make it easier for members, Cathay is enhancing their digital experience, from their curated website to the Cathay mobile app, allowing customers to access their membership card, earn and redeem Asia Miles, accrue Status Points, and access the latest offers all in one place. The elevated membership program has a four tier structure with Diamond, Gold, Silver and Green levels. Current Marco Polo Club Diamond, Gold and Silver members will directly transition into the corresponding Cathay status with automatic renewal through 2022, while current Marco Polo Club Green and Asia Miles members will become Cathay Green Members. Under Cathay, members can collect Status Points on the ground and in the air with Cathay’s co-branded credit cards, and all Cathay members can enjoy benefits such as priority check-in.
