Membership tiers

Flight rewards. Seat upgrades. Airport lounge access and more. Emirates Skywards has four membership tiers, each with increasing benefits and advantages.

Once you join Emirates Skywards, you can enjoy benefits that increase in value as you move up the tiers. You can easily achieve the next tier by:

  • earning the required number Tier Miles by flying with Emirates or flydubai; or
  • completing the required number of Emirates or flydubai flights
  • paying for your everyday purchases with an Emirates Skywards cobranded card*

Once you achieve the next tier, you enjoy your membership privileges for 14 months, even if you don’t earn enough Tier Miles or take enough flights to retain the tier status in your annual review.

*The Tier Miles offer is currently available for Emirates Skywards cobranded cards in the USA only.
