Cathay Pacific enhances rewards programme
12 Jun 2018 - by
Cathay Pacific has enhanced its rewards programme, Asia Miles. The enhancements will come into effect on June 22.
Members will earn Asia Miles on the vast majority (80%) of the airline’s tickets, including those to popular destinations such as Shanghai, Osaka and London. They will earn Asia Miles based on a combination of cabin class, fare class and distance zone. For tickets issued before June 22 for travel on or after this date, members will be credited with the higher number of Asia Miles, irrespective of the changes.
Cathay Pacific is also increasing the number of seats available for passengers to redeem by 20% or more.
Furthermore, members will be able to redeem all economy-class tickets with fewer or the same miles. Some premium-class flight awards, especially on longer routes, will require more miles to redeem. However, this should be looked at in tandem with members’ increased Asia Miles earning potential. All flight awards will be set as one-way to allow even more flexibility, so that members can fly to and from a destination in different cabin classes.
Loyalty programme members will also benefit from a new online flight award booking system.
These changes to Asia Miles are in addition to recent Marco Polo Club programme enhancements, which have seen members earn more club points on Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon flights across all distance zones in selected fare classes, as well as the threshold to maintain Green membership reduced.
