Marco Polo Club

Status Points

We will gradually rename club points to “Status Points” from 1 March 2022. Point calculation will continue to be based on a combination of airline, cabin, fare class or fare type, and distance travelled. With Cathay Pacific, you can earn more Status Points and Asia Miles per sector to all routes flown with Essential and Flex fares. Please click here to learn more.

As a Marco Polo Club member, you can earn Status Points whenever you fly in eligible fare classes or fare types with Cathay Pacific or any of our oneworld alliance airlines. Status Points are calculated based on a combination of airline, cabin, fare class or fare type, and distance travelled.

Club tier qualification

The chart below indicates the number of Status Points required within a membership year to renew or upgrade tiers within a membership year. In addition to these points, the member must fly at least one eligible sector on Cathay Pacific.


20 Status Points


300 Status Points


600  Status Points


1,200  Status Points

A membership year lasts 12 months from the date you have enrolled, renewed, upgraded or downgraded into your current tier. Upon renewal, upgrade or downgrade, your Status Points will automatically be reset to zero and a new membership year begins.

Upgrades occur as soon as you accrue enough Status Points to enter next tier threshold within a membership year. As multiple tier upgrades are not allowed, you can only progress one club tier at a time.

Please view the full terms and conditions related to earning Status Points. To calculate how many Status Points you will earn for a particular journey, please visit the Status Points and Asia Miles Calculator page.


The Distance Zones are based on miles flown between Hong Kong and all the destinations listed.
