    When it comes to travelling, there are multiple ways to earn more Asia Miles. All members booking Cathay Pacific or HK Express can enjoy a rate of HKD3=1, but you can use your Standard Chartered Cathay Mastercard to earn additional miles.

On top of that, every accumulated HK$8,000 worth of spending gets you a bonus of 2,000 (at up to HKD2=1). Cardholders can enjoy a maximum of 4,000 during the promotion period. 

    If you’re a Standard Chartered Cathay Mastercard – Priority Banking or Standard Chartered Cathay Mastercard - Priority Private cardholder, you can elevate your journey further with exclusive additional travel privileges.
