Marco Polo Club

Earning club points

As a Marco Polo Club member, you can earn club points whenever you fly in eligible fare classes with Cathay Pacific, Cathay Dragon or any of our oneworld alliance airlines. Club points are calculated based on a combination of airline, cabin, fare class and distance travelled. We have a club points earning grid and a club points calculator below to help you understand the point system. Please view the full terms and conditions.

Visit Club news to learn more about our recent changes, including the new club points grid that takes effect on 8 December 2017.

Club tier qualification

The chart below indicates the number of club 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 or Cathay Dragon.


20 club points


300 club points


600  club points


1,200  club 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 club points will automatically be reset to zero and a new membership year begins.

Upgrades occur as soon as you accrue enough club 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.

Club points calculator

You can earn club points when you fly Cathay Pacific, Cathay Dragon, or any of our oneworld airlines. To calculate how many club points for a particular journey, simply use the calculator below.

Choose an airline, put in your origin and destination, and select your preferred fare class to calculate how many club points you will earn.

Use another club points calculator on our Club news page to see how many more club points you’ll earn after the changes.

While every care has been taken in preparing this calculator and in formulating the assumptions included in it, the calculator results should be taken as an indicator only, rather than an absolutely accurate computation. Please refer to the club points earning grid for the most up to date information.
