NTUC LinkPoints reinstates Cathay Pacific Asia Miles as a transfer partner

One of the easiest ways to keep your Asia Miles balance alive is back, with two-way NTUC LinkPoints transfers now supported again.

Back in June this year, a couple of months after transfers between LinkPoints and KrisFlyer miles first became available, we noticed that NTUC had removed the option to convert your LinkPoints to Cathay Pacific’s Asia Miles programme.


We gave our readers a heads-up on this development via our Telegram Channel, which you should definitely consider subscribing to since we don’t always write a full article for every topic, but we do still share important news there for the community.

While these transfers were never good value to do this, it was probably the easiest way for Singapore-based members to ensure any Asia Miles in their account earned on or or after January 2020 would not expire.

That’s because the programme moved to an activity-based miles expiry policy, meaning all you now have to do to keep your entire stash of miles alive for another 18 months is earn or redeem at least 1 mile.

LinkPoints to Asia Miles transfers are back

This week NTUC Link Rewards reinstated the Asia Miles transfer option, under the Cathay Pacific banner (Asia Miles is now the currency of the new ‘Cathay’ frequent flyer programme).
