When travelling on Cathay Pacific or Cathay Dragon, you can save on extra baggage costs by redeeming your Asia Miles for extra baggage allowance. The number of Asia Miles required depends on your travel distance, or the total number of your oversized or overweight pieces.

For example, you need only 3,500 Asia Miles to redeem an extra 5kg of baggage on a flight from Hong Kong to Shanghai (Zone A).
