Bottom line

Starting in the fall of 2023, this news will give Canadians a new option to earn Asia Miles and fly to Asia using Cathay Pacific Asia Miles.

For its part, Neo continues to expand its credit card portfolio, just after the arrival of the new Tim credit card. We don’t know how much longer the RBC Cathay Pacific Visa Platinum Card will be on the market.
