Cathay Pacific Introduces New Card For US Travelers

[Thursday, July 28th, 2016]

A new co-branded rewards credit card from Visa and Cathay Pacific Airways will let travelers earn rewards and enjoy benefits when they use the card to purchase flights on Cathay Pacific.

Cathay Pacific flies to 173 destinations in 42 countries and territories. It flies to Hong Kong from Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City, and San Francisco. The Cathay Pacific Airways Visa credit card will give qualifying cardholders access to special fares, travel packages, and services while travelling.

“We’re pleased to further expand out credit programs in the travel industry,” said Tom Quindlen of Synchrony Financial, the company issuing the cards. “Cathy Pacific is renowned for their customer service and we look forward to ensuring this exceptional experience extends to the new credit card program.” He went on to say that the card would provide “meaningful rewards and value for US travelers.

Cardholders will be able to earn frequent flier miles with the card, take advantage of great savings and benefits, and make purchases at a competitive annual percentage rate.

Cathay Pacific is a founding member of the oneworld global airline alliance; folks with the Cathay Pacific credit card can accrue frequent flyer miles and use them to book flights on partner airlines in the oneworld alliance.

Travel credit cards are handy to have if you fly a lot; different cards have different benefits, but one thing that co-branded cards like the Cathay Pacific card can offer is the ability to get rewards at one specific airline. Co-branded cards often offer perks like free bag check and priority boarding, as well as discounts on in-flight purchases and access to exclusive travel lounges.

Other types of reward credit cards let you redeem your points for travel of any type, whether it’s air travel, train tickets, car rentals, or even bus tickets. If you like to travel on many different airlines, then a generic travel rewards credit card may be the way to go, rather than getting a co-branded card. But if you are a fan of Cathay Pacific and the oneworld alliance, this new card is worth looking into.

Some things to look for when applying for a new credit card include: what is the annual fee? What is the annual percentage rate, or APR, in case I carry a balance over from one month to the next? What benefits does the card offer? There is a great travel rewards credit card for every customer; it just may take some time to find it.
