Cathay Pacific extends Marco Polo Club status – to 2022 in some cases

Members of Cathay Pacific's Marco Polo Club will retain their status levels for an additional year under a much simplified 'blanket extension' policy

Airlines around the world have been finding ways to keep their most loyal frequent flyers happy during the COVID-19 outbreak by extending their top-tier status benefits, or making it easier for them to renew at their current status levels, while it’s become almost impossible to travel during this period.

You may recall that in early April Singapore Airlines rolled out a generous one-year status extension for KrisFlyer and PPS Club members with membership years ending between March 2020 and February 2021.

The airline also later extended the validity of KrisFlyer miles expiring between April 2020 and August 2020 by six months.


How Marco Polo Club status works

Marco Polo Club is Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon’s loyalty programme. Marco Polo Club members need to accrue a certain level of ‘club points’ to earn and retain status through the scheme.
