Skywards Miles can be earned flying Emirates and flydubai. You can also earn miles flying partner airlines, booking other forms of travel, and spending with select retailers.
Flying Emirates & flydubai
Skywards Miles are earned every time you fly Emirates or flydubai. The amount of miles you earn are based on fare type, class, and tier (elite status). There are several fares you can choose from when flying Emirates or flydubai:
- Flex Plus
- Value Flex
After you choose your fare, you will then earn a certain amount of miles based on the class of travel you choose. Those who aim for First Class and Business Class seats will earn the biggest bonus while those choosing to sit in Economy will receive a lower bonus.
Finally, your elite status in the Skywards program will grant an additional miles bonus. Each tier will give you a different percentage of bonus points:
- Blue: No Bonus
- Silver Members: 25% Bonus
- Gold Members: 50% Bonus
- Platinum Members: 75% Bonus
When flying Emirates or flydubai, you will also earn Tier Miles if the flight number starts with EK or FZ. Tier Miles are used to determine your elite status in the Skywards program and cannot be spent for flights and rewards. These miles are based on route, fare, and class.
