Emirates Skywards

Emirates Skywards and spending Miles

Why am I asked for a credit card when buying a flight with my Miles?

Credit card information is required in order to cover the government taxes and airport charges levied on all ticket purchases, including those purchased with Skywards Miles, whether with Emirates or with a partner airline (except flydubai). Airport taxes are compulsory and are not taken by the airline but are usually charged by governments or airport management companies.
