Cathay Pacific has today announced tier extensions for its Marco Polo Club members.
Emails have gone out explaining to members whose status was set to expire in 2021 that it will be extended by an additional 12 months.
You can access Cathay Pacific here.
Here’s the mail that Cathay sent out:
Since we announced the automatic tier renewal scheme for club members last year, travel plans continue to be affected by the pandemic. Although new ways to keep us safe are being rolled out, we know it will be some time before COVID-19 is brought under control.
In view of this, we will be renewing your Diamond membership – and the status for all members whose memberships expire in 2021 – for another 12 months. If you have any unused mid-tier benefits that expire between May and December 2021, we will reissue them for another 12 months. This should take about 7 working days from their date of expiry.
Your digital membership card gives you access to the same benefits as your physical card, and can easily be accessed by signing into your account on cathaypacific.com or on our mobile app. If you haven’t already, you can download our mobile app so you’ll never be without your card.
I want to thank you again for your on-going support during these challenging times. We look forward to welcoming you on board again.

Airlines and hotels don’t have any other choice than to extend elite tiers if they want to keep their members happy in the current procurement where most non-essential business travel is not allowed or frowned upon.
I am glad that Cathay Pacific decided to make this announced early in the year, and I don’t believe, unfortunately, that it would be the last, looking at what direction the Covid-19 has most recently taken.
