China Airlines Dynasty Flyer Grants Further Status Extension & Reduction Of Requalification Requirement

Good news for customers of Taiwan’s China Airlines Dynasty Flyer as the airline has just announced their latest policy of complimentary elite tier extension for members whose status would otherwise expire on/before December 31st, 2024.

In addition to this, Dynasty Flyer will also reduce the qualification period of members’ accounts by 40% so it’s possible to extend the status for an additional (second) year for significantly less.

It’s now finally possible to travel to Taiwan again after a solid 3-year period of the country remaining a hermit kingdom.

This is already the 6th time that China Airlines is publishing a policy to provide relief to their members as outlined on their status extension promotional page under PHASE 1/2.

Members were first informed via email last night where the program outlines their latest extension policies:

Dear Dynasty members,

China Airlines makes a few distinctions for these extensions depending on when the current status of members naturally expires and then an additional, discounted qualification period.

1. Paragon, Emerald and Gold card holders

Status expired on/before December 31st, 2024

(1) 1-Year Status Extension Upon Status Expiration
Current Paragon, Emerald and Gold members whose status expire on/before December 31st, 2024 will enjoy 1-year extension for their status in the next month of current status expiration. No application is needed. However, Paragon and Emerald members who renew their status by this special offer will not obtain renewal gift and luggage tag will not be issued. You are welcome to contact our customer service centers or branch offices to apply for new luggage tags if you need as current practice.

(2) 2-Year Status Extension If Reach 60% of Current Renewal Qualification
Current Paragon, Emerald and Gold members whose status expire on/before December 31st, 2024 and reach 60% of current renewal qualification will enjoy 2-year extension for their status in the next month of current status expiration. However, you still have to earn at least 6 weighted trips with China Airlines / Mandarin Airlines self-operated scheduled international flights. For Paragon and Emerald members reaching discounted renewal qualification, renewal gifts will not be awarded.

(3) If you have already reached original renewal qualification, your status will still be renewed for 2 years in the next month of current status expiration, which will not be affected by this special offer. The way new cards and renewal gift will be granted as current practice.

The comparison chart outlines the various status levels:

China Airlines will not issue the annual renewal gift for those memberships extended on a complimentary or discounted basis. I’m not sure why they make such a big deal out of some cheap luggage tags. After all, even under the discounted qualification levels isn’t exactly easy.

Those members whose status expires after the December 31st cutoff are lucky as they will receive TWO YEARS extension.

Phase 2 : Status expired from January 31st, 2025 to January 31st, 2027

(1) 2- Year Status Extension Upon Status Expiration

Current Paragon, Emerald and Gold members whose status expire from January 31st, 2025 to January 31st, 2027 will enjoy 2-year extension for their status in the next month of current status expiration. No application is needed.However, Paragon and Emerald members who renew their status by this special offer will not obtain renewal gift and luggage tag will not be issued. You are welcome to contact our customer service centers or branch offices to apply for new luggage tags if you need as current practice.
(2) If you have already reached original renewal qualification, your status will still be renewed for 2 years in the next month of current status expiration, which will not be affected by this special offer. The way new cards and renewal gift will be granted as current practice.

It’s surprising China Airlines is going into yet another round of extensions after almost all airlines, and their programs returned to the regular requirements.

Conclusion

China Airlines Dynasty Flyer has announced yet another period of status extensions for their tier members whose status expires either by the end of this year or thereafter, giving them up to two years extra. Members will also be able to requalify at 40% less flight activity.

Taiwan has been open for travel without restrictions for the full year now, and if someone can’t reach a certain tier level, then at some point, there must be a cut made to return to pre-pandemic rules.
