Extending your membership status and benefits

As Hong Kong and the world open up, we’re looking forward to the return of international travel. With the launch of the elevated Cathay membership programme in August, we would like to thank you, our members, for your longstanding support and help you embark on more adventures while enjoying all the Cathay status benefits by automatically extending all Silver, Gold and Diamond memberships, as well as any unused mid-status benefits earned this year, until 31 December 2023.

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

Automatic extension of membership status

All Silver, Gold and Diamond memberships expiring between December 2022 and November 2023 will automatically extend to 31 December 2023 regardless of whether the status requirements have been met.

Status Point arrangement

The Status Points balance of Silver, Gold and Diamond members with membership status expiring on or before 31 December 2022 will be reset to zero after the automatic status extension.

The Status Points balance of Silver, Gold and Diamond members with a current membership end date on or after 1 January 2023 will be carried forward to the end of 2023.

Automatic extension of mid-status benefits

Any unused mid-status benefits of Silver, Gold and Diamond members that expire between December 2022 and November 2023 will be extended to 31 December 2023. This should take about 10 working days from the expiry date.
