Asia Miles, one of Asia’s leading travel and

From June, members will earn more miles when
they fly Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon, and there will be more

There will be three enhanced flight award types to choose from
– Standard, Choice, and Tailored. Whether members are looking to
get the most value for their miles or select the exact travel
dates they want, the three award types will make it easier for
members to redeem their preferred tickets.
