Emirates Skywards

A more rewarding way to fly
Emirates Skywards is our award-winning frequent flyer programme. It rewards our members’ loyalty with more choices, upgrades as well as other travel and lifestyle benefits such as hassle-free check-in and excess baggage allowance.

It’s free to join any of the four membership tiers – Blue, Silver, Gold or Platinum.

Earning Miles
Every Emirates flight earns Miles, even special offers. Miles can also be earned on flights with our growing alliance of partner airlines and with exclusive offers from our global partners in hospitality, car hire, finance, lifestyle and retail.

There are two types of Miles in the Emirates Skywards programme, which are valuable in different ways:

Skywards Miles are the currency of the programme earned through flights, promotions and partner offers and can be redeemed for a variety of rewards. Other ways to boost Skywards Miles:

  • Receiving a transfer of Miles from friends or family
  • Purchasing more Miles at a special rate
  • Taking part in ‘Refer a friend’ and other promotions
  • Collecting bonus Miles when family members fly with Emirates

Tier Miles are collected only when members fly with Emirates. They help in reaching the next membership tier to enter a wider world of benefits and qualification is based on members achieving one of the following:

Blue                -         No qualification requirements
Silver              -         25,000 Tier Miles or 25 flights*
Gold               -         50,000 Tier Miles or 50 flights*
Platinum         -         150,000 Tier Miles

*A qualifying flight is a flight on Emirates, or a codeshare flight marketed by Emirates but operated by another airline, between the point of origin and point of destination of an outward or return journey.

Spending Miles
Members can upgrade their Emirates flight using Miles or pay for their entire ticket with Miles, known as Classic Rewards.

With the introduction of Cash+Miles to our Emirates Skywards product offering, members can choose to pay using a combination of cash and Skywards Miles for any commercially available ticket, on any flight, any fare, and in any class. This means Miles are as good as currency, and opting for Cash+Miles instantly reduces the cost of the fare.

Members can also spend Skywards Miles with our airline, hotel, car rental, financial, retail and lifestyle partners.

Other ways to spend Miles include:

Miles are valid for three years so members can choose to spend them at their leisure or save up for something special.

A world of exclusive benefits
Members start enjoying travel benefits from the moment they join, including priority on waiting lists for fully booked flights. The more they fly, the more privileges they unlock as they move through our Silver, Gold and Platinum tiers. From lounge access and guaranteed seats to priority check-in and extra baggage allowance, we create a more rewarding experience at every step.

Inspiring tomorrow’s explorers
The success of our Emirates Skywards programme led to the creation of Skywards Skysurfers – a club dedicated to our young explorers. It offers travel privileges and special offers to travellers aged between two and 16 years, and they earn Miles in the same way as our Emirates Skywards members.
