COVID-19: Emirates Offers Skywards Members Peace of Mind

Emirates’ loyalty programme, Emirates Skywards, is supporting its members by relaxing policies, adding flexibility, and including extensions during the global pandemic.

Silver, Gold and Platinum members with a tier review date prior to 1 March 2021 will retain their current status with just 80% of the usual travel requirements.

This means Silver members now need to accumulate only 20,000 tier Miles, Gold members 40,000 and Platinum 120,000 to retain their status.

Silver, Gold and Platinum members, who are unable to retain their existing tier during status reviews that fall between March and September 2020, will have their status automatically extended until 31 December 2020.

Members who have Skywards Miles expiring soon needn’t worry. The loyalty programme has extended their validity until 31 December 2020.

Skywards Miles can be redeemed up to 11 months in advance across an extensive range of rewards, including flight tickets on Emirates and partner airlines, flight upgrades, hotel stays, and money-can’t-buy experiences.

As an example, in April members can use their Skywards Miles to book an Emirates flight ticket for travel in March 2021.

While at home, members can still earn Skywards Miles on their everyday online purchases by using their Emirates Skywards co-branded credit cards to bank their Miles for future flight rewards.

More information about the loyalty program is available on the Skywards section of the Emirates App and
