The RBC Cathay Pacific Platinum card earns Asia Miles and offers cardholders complimentary Green Tier membership in the Cathay Pacific loyalty program.
The RBC Cathay Pacific Platinum credit card accrues Cathay Asia miles for all purchases made on the card:
- 2 Asia Miles for every dollar spent on Cathay Pacific purchases online.

Redeeming Asia Miles
Asia Miles can be redeemed for flight rewards on Cathay Pacific metal in addition to their airline partners. This is the best value for your Asia miles, especially if you redeem for premium cabins. The redemption rate award chart can be found here.
Cathay Pacific Asia miles can also be redeemed for other travel purchases, such as hotels and rental cars, at a cent per point value that is far from optimal.
