World of Hyatt announced they’re going to be helping members who live in the Asia Pacific region by extending their elite status and benefits for another year due to the Coronavirus, which will significant impact travel.

Specifically, all World of Hyatt elite members residing in the region can expect to see their status extended until February 28, 2022. Additionally, free night awards and upgrades will also be extended until the end of 2021.

Per Hyatt,

In response to the COVID-19 situation, World of Hyatt today announced that it will be offering members residing in the Asia Pacific region a series of tier status and benefits extensions, including:

  • Qualifying World of Hyatt Discoverist, Explorist and Globalist members will now have a new tier expiration of February 28, 2022 – rather than February 28, 2021 – to maintain their elite tier status and benefits.
  • Currently valid Suite Upgrade Awards, Club Access Awards and Free Night Awards that expire in 2020 for qualifying members will be extended through December 31, 2021.

World of Hyatt is actively working to update qualifying members’ accounts to reflect the extension of elite tier status and award validity and expects these changes to be made by March 31, 2020. Qualifying members will receive information regarding these updates through email, My Hyatt Concierge, WeChat communications and more.  Members with questions regarding their tier status can contact the nearest Hyatt Global Contact Center, reach Hyatt via WeChat (WeChat ID: HyattHotels) or email worldofhyatt@hyatt.com.

Additionally, World of Hyatt shared that they are looking at a possible tier and benefit extension fo members who don’t live in the Asia Pacific region but travel their frequently.

Considering many airlines have cut flights completely, it’s great to see that Hyatt has taken this initiative. I wouldn’t be surprised if we see US airlines also adding something similar in place for those who also reside in Asia.

  1. Wtf. This is totally unfair. I’m Asian American and most of my Hyatt travel is in Asia which I had to cancel. I would’ve gladly gone there if I didn’t want to get sick. They should extend the same benefit to people who stay in Asia and all those shithole countries there.
