Malaysia Airlines previously announced its Covid-19 miles and voucher extension policies that we have covered (read more here).
The airline has today decided to extend member tiers that are earned based in 2019 activity through march 31, 2022 (by a year).

Note that this extension also applies to members that may have received the elite tier through a status match. The status extension is automatic.
Here’s the announcement from Malaysia Airlines:
Enrich Members currently holding Elite Status set to expire in 2021 will receive status extension valid through March 2022.
This includes members who earned 2020 Elite Status based on 2019 flying activities or through a status challenge.
In the event that you are upgraded to a higher status before the end of this year, your new status will be valid through the end of March 2022 as well.
- You are currently holding Enrich Silver status for 2020; current status valid till March 2021 will be extended through March 31, 2022.
- You earn 55,000 Elite Miles in August 2020; your status will be upgraded to Enrich Gold valid through March 31, 2022.
With this, you can rest assured that your Elite Status and benefits are secured for another year. The extension is automatic and there is no need to contact Enrich to apply.
Malaysia Airlines is about the last airline to announce its elite status extension due to the current global pandemic. I am glad that they just decided to extend everyone by a year that is the industry standard.
