The alignment of the loyalty programme for both airlines builds on Emirates and flydubai’s close partnership which includes codesharing on an extended global route network and several initiatives including commercial, network planning, and airport operations.

“We are pleased to announce the expansion of our loyalty programme to now include two airlines- Emirates airline and flydubai. The strategic move will bring even more benefits to our members giving them opportunities to earn and spend Miles on an extended global route network, as well as select privileges on both airlines,” said Dr Nejib Ben Khedher, Senior Vice President, Emirates Skywards.

Emirates Skywards members can now earn Skywards Miles and Tier Miles on all flydubai flights. Members can also spend Skywards Miles or a combination of cash and Miles to book flydubai flights, as well as to pay for optional extras such as pre-ordered meals and extra legroom seats.

Emirates Skywards members can use the flydubai Miles Calculator tool on Emirates website to check how many Miles they will earn for each fare type of their chosen flight.

When travelling on flydubai, Emirates Skywards Silver, Gold and Platinum members will be able to get select benefits regardless of their class of travel including extra baggage allowances and priority check-in at flydubai’s Business Class counters.

New Emirates Skywards members will also receive a first flight bonus when they take their first Emirates or flydubai flight within six months of joining.
