Extending your membership status and benefits

In 2021, all members whose membership status expired within 2021 were extended for 12 months, along with all unused mid-tier benefits that expired between May and December 2021.

In appreciation of our members’ on-going support, we are now extending the membership status and unused mid-tier benefits of Silver, Gold and Diamond members through to 31 December 2022, so that members can continue to enjoy benefits and rewards that they love and value.

At the same time, Marco Polo Club Green members can enjoy their current benefits until the end of their membership year. After that, Marco Polo Green members will become Cathay Green members with benefits that never expires. Click here for more details about Cathay member benefits.

Automatic extension of membership status

Silver, Gold and Diamond memberships expiring between January and December 2022 will be extended to 31 December 2022 automatically, regardless of whether the tier requirements have been met. Silver, Gold and Diamond members’ Status Points balance as of 31 December 2021 will also be carried forward to the end of 2022.

Automatic extension of mid-tier benefits

Any unused mid-tier benefits of Silver, Gold and Diamond members that expire in 2022 will be extended to 31 December 2022. This should take about 10 working days from the expiry date.
