Emirates Skywards: Earning Miles and Miles Accelerator

What is ‘opting in’? Why do I have to do this to receive bonus Miles?

To ensure we can track your Miles progress and credit bonus Miles to your account, you must be opted in for a Miles Accelerator bonus before you travel. This information is then stored in your Emirates Skywards account, so that when you fly the extra Miles automatically appear in your statement. If you log in and purchase a ticket online we will automatically opt you in for those flights. If you purchase a ticket from a travel agent, you can visit emirates.com and opt in before or after you buy your ticket, as long as you do so during the month of purchase.
