Dhaka: Emirates Skywards, the loyalty programme of the airline, is supporting its 27+ million members by understanding their needs, relaxing policies, adding flexibility, and including extensions during the corona pandemic.
Emirates Skywards Silver, Gold and Platinum members with a tier review date prior to 1 March 2021 will retain their current status with just 80 per cent 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.
Emirates Skywards 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 December 31, 2020.
Members who have Skywards Miles expiring soon will enjoy extended validity until December 31, 2020. Skywards Miles can be redeemed up to 11 months in advance . As an example, in April members can use their Skywards Miles to book an Emirates flight ticket for travel in March 2021.
While staying in and working from 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.
The Emirates Skywards team is working 24x7 behind the scenes to support its 27 million members with their queries and concerns, and also on a range of attractive new offers and products that members will benefit from once Emirates’ services are back on track.
