About Emirates Skywards
Emirates Skywards is an award-winning loyalty program that brings benefits which greatly enhance your traveling experience. They have two different types of Miles which can be earned. Skymiles are earned with flights, promotions, and partner offers (such as spending in certain hotels). Tier Miles are collected only with Emirates flights and collecting enough will qualify you to enter a new membership tier with even greater benefits. Unlike with other frequent flyer programs, collecting miles on Emirates is a bit more restrictive and difficult, but that’s because this luxury airlines provides very high-end service and products. Miles are typically used for paying for flights, or upgrading one class up. You can also use your miles to pay for a fraction of your trip, bringing the price of your ticket down. A larger benefit of earning tier miles in Emirates is getting into their Membership Tiers which range from Blue to Platinum. These benefits include highly personalized service, instant upgrades, bonus miles when traveling with Emirates, guaranteed excess luggage allowance, lounge access, lounge access for guests, and even guaranteed seating on fully booked flights (under conditions). Emirates is all about luxury and service, and they spare no expense for tier members.
Emirates was conceived in March 1985 with backing from Dubai’s Royal family due to Gulf Air cutting back services to Dubai. It expanded operations to Colombo, Dhaka, Amman, and Cairo and eventually experienced strong growth by expanding into the Far East Market. Emirates is consistently ranked as one of the top airlines in the world and is known for having the most luxurious first class cabins. They were the first to offer showers on aircrafts and are one of the few airlines to have cabin bars for business and first class passengers. They also have some of the largest aircraft carriers used in commercial flights.
