Emirates Transfer Partners

Emirates does not offer a co-branded credit card and it is not a direct transfer partner of any major Canadian bank rewards program. This means that earning a steady stream of Skywards Miles at a great rate will not be possible for the program.

Your best bet for earning Emirates Skywards Miles will be spending with their partners.

You can transfer rewards to your Emirates Skywards account using:

  • ALL - Accor Live Limitless
  • Heathrow Rewards
  • Hilton Honors
  • World of Hyatt
  • IHG Rewards Club
  • Jumeirah Sirius Rewards
  • Marriott Bonvoy
  • Radisson Rewards
  • Shangri-La Golden Circle

Best Credit Cards For Earning Emirates Miles

You don't have many options when it comes to earning Emirates Skywards Miles with credit cards in Canada. The only decent option is the Marriott Bonvoy program in which Marriott Points can be transferred to Emirates at a 3:1 ratio.

Using the few credit cards Marriott offers in Canada, you can use the sign up bonuses as well as Marriott spend to build up a decent amount of points transferrable to the Emirates Skywards program.
