If you haven't earned enough Miles to achieve the reward of your choice, or you’d like to give Miles to a fellow Emirates Skywards member as a gift, you can purchase them online by logging in and going to the Manage Account section. Miles can also be purchased through your nearest Emirates Contact Centre.
