Emi­rates Sky­wards has made it even easier to re­deem re­ward flights and earn travel and life­style re­wards by giv­ing mem­bers more flex­i­bil­ity in man­ag­ing their Sky­wards miles. Mem­bers of Emi­rates’ award-win­ning loy­alty pro­gramme can now buy, gift or trans­fer miles to their loved ones at a more attractive rate.

The cost of buy­ing or gift­ing miles has been ad­justed to $30 per 1,000 miles, while trans­fer­ring miles costs $15 per 1,000 miles giv­ing mem­bers the op­por­tu­nity to earn re­wards faster. Trans­ac­tion lim­its have also been in­creased en­abling mem­bers to buy or gift up to 100,000 Sky­wards miles per year and trans­fer up to 50,000 miles a year.

In ad­di­tion, the pro­gramme now en­ables mem­bers to re­in­state ex­pired miles. Mem­bers who have miles that have ex­pired in the last six months can re­in­state them at a nom­i­nal charge of $20 per 1,000 miles.

"We con­stantly look at all av­enues to en­hance the Emi­rates Sky­wards pro­gramme and de­liver greater value to our global mem­ber­ship base,” said Dr Ne­jib Ben Kheder, se­nior vice pres­i­dent, Emi­rates Sky­wards. “Our mem­bers know how to max­imise the value that Sky­wards of­fers and can now en­joy greater flex­i­bil­ity when they buy, gift, trans­fer or re­in­state their Sky­wards miles. With our pro­gramme con­tin­u­ally evolv­ing, the com­ing months will see the ad­di­tion of even more fea­tures en­abling our mem­bers greater op­por­tu­nity than ever to earn miles and ac­cess re­wards across our wide range of flights, travel and life­style re­lated prod­ucts.” Emi­rates Sky­wards part­nered with Points, the global leader in pow­er­ing loy­alty commerce, to en­hance the func­tion­al­ity to buy, gift, trans­fer and re­in­state Sky­wards miles giv­ing mem­bers more flex­i­bil­ity in man­ag­ing their miles. The trans­ac­tions can all be made at emi­rates.com once the mem­ber is logged in.

Be­sides flight re­wards and up­grades, mem­bers can earn and re­deem Sky­wards miles through over 100 pro­gramme part­ners in­clud­ing air­lines, ho­tels and re­tail and life­style out­lets.
