Asiana has announced its Covid-19 Asiana Club status extension policy that is applied to eligible member accounts on/after April 20, 2020.
Asiana Club is extending the elite qualification period by 3 or 6 months, depending on when your status runs out.
You can access this announcement on Asiana’s website here.
Here’s the Asiana Covid-19 status extension policy:
Notice for Asiana Club Elite Membership Upgrade and Eligibility Maintenance Standards Evaluation Period Extension
For the convenience of our valued customers, we would like to inform you that we will extend the evaluation period from 24 months to 30 months for Asiana Club Elite membership upgrade and Eligibility maintenance standards to compensate for COVID-19 crisis.
Normally, customers can acquire Elite Membership and maintain eligibility with the 24 months period, but this has now been temporarily changed and extended to 30 months due to the COVID-19
1. Elite membership upgrade period extension: All Asiana Club Members (excluding Kids, Life Time membership)
2. Elite membership maintenance period extension: Applicable for active Elite members at the time on the 13th of April 2020 and members who got downgraded after the 1st of March 2020
Condition for this Extension is only applied up to the 31st of January 2022
e.g. 1) For the members who will be eligible to maintain their membership grade until 31st of June 2021, their evaluation period will be extended until 31st of December 2021 (6 months extended)
e.g. 2) For the members who will be eligible to maintain their membership grade until 31st of October 2021, their evaluation period will be extended until 31st of January 2022 (3 months extended)
It is available for customers to check their extended date on / after 20th of April on My Asiana.
Asiana Club has a very generous qualification period of two years that they have now extended by three or six months.
I would say, however, that three months extension is rather short when it is unclear when airlines can resume most of their services.
