Emirates Skywards Marks 16 Years


Emirates’ frequent flyer program, Emirates Skywards, is celebrating its 16th year with more than 16 million members and the successful launch of new initiatives to enhance reward options for members.

Since the program’s inception in 2000, Skywards members have redeemed 220 billion miles on reward flights, hotels stays and exclusive access to some of the world’s biggest events. The diversity of the program’s partners and rewards are reflected in the airline’s global customer base and network spanning six continents and more than 150 destinations.

With a focus on customer satisfaction, Emirates Skywards continuously forms exclusive partnerships and introduces new initiatives to offer greater value, choice and flexibility to its members. Most recently, Emirates Skywards has introduced Cash+Miles – allowing flight redemption using a combination of cash and Skywards Miles. Members in all four tiers – Blue, Silver, Gold and Platinum – can start redeeming flights with as little as 2,000 miles.
