Emirates Business Rewards is open to any organisation, but it’s designed to offer benefits to small and medium sized organisations that don’t have a corporate travel agreement with Emirates. It can also be used to complement any travel agreements that may be in place.
These are the flights and upgrades that you can book using your Business Rewards Points. ‘Dynamic’ refers to the flexibility of being able to redeem Points for most Emirates flights, in all travel classes and on all fare types. The number of Points you need for a flight will depend on seat availability and the fare on that day. The number of Points you need for an upgrade will depend on seat availability and the fare difference between the two classes.
Emirates Business Rewards is our corporate loyalty programme, open to organisations of all sizes around the world. Your organisation will earn Business Rewards Points whenever your employees or guest travellers fly on Emirates, which you can then spend on Dynamic Reward Flights and Upgrades. Individuals also earn Skywards Miles on the same flight if they’re an Emirates Skywards member. There’s no limit on how many employees can join the programme and no minimum spend is needed.
We have a range of commercial products to meet the needs of our corporate customers. If the travel volumes of your organisation qualify for a corporate travel agreement, you can still join Emirates Business Rewards and make your business travel even more rewarding.
Your trade licence is a legal document that gives you the right to operate a business in your city or country. We need a copy for our records to show that your business has been legally approved by your local government.

An employee is someone who works for your organisation, has a valid email address and would like access to your Emirates Business Rewards account. They can make their own bookings and choose to pay with their own card or send the booking to the Programme Administrator for payment.
A guest traveller could be someone who works for your organisation, a consultant travelling on behalf of the organisation or someone who doesn’t have a valid email address (for example in the case of construction and marine companies where staff work on a rotational basis). A guest traveller won’t have access to your Emirates Business Rewards account and all bookings for guest travellers need to be made by the Programme Administrator.
No, you’re not able to combine your Points with those from another Emirates Business Rewards account.
No, Business Rewards Points cannot be combined with Skywards Miles or vice versa.

You can find more information on the Emirates Skywards Membership tiers page.
The main differences between the fare types are the changes you can make to your ticket and the upgrade options available.
If you’re travelling in Economy Class on a Special or Saver fare ticket, you’ll need to pay for Advance Seat Selection.
If you’re making a booking online via your Emirates Business Rewards account, you’ll need to pay online, or choose the payment option available in your country.
