Spending Miles

The best part about earning Miles is deciding how to spend them, and it won’t take you long to reach exciting rewards. You could earn enough Miles for an upgrade after just one long-distance trip.

You can use your Miles on flydubai and our airline partners worldwide, hotel stays, car rentals, shopping and tours. You can also spend your Miles or join the auction for special event tickets, exclusive invitations and more.

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