Spending Miles

As well as reward flights and upgrades on Emirates, you can spend your Miles with our worldwide partners. Choose from flights with our partner airlines, luxury hotel stays, fun-filled family days out, or even tickets to a wide range of sporting and cultural events across the globe.

Your Miles are valid for three years, so you’ll have plenty of time if you want to save up for something really special.
