How the Programme Works

How the Programme Works

Tomorrow makes the most of your business travel when you fly Emirates

Who’s eligible?

Business Rewards is available to all small to medium sized organisations. They can register up to 80 members. All individual members also need to be members of Emirates Skywards to ensure they earn their personal Miles on the same flight. You can remove individual members from your Business Rewards account at any time, but no more than 80 new members can join within a 12-month period.

Business Rewards Administrators 

Each registered organisation has one or more administrator who can plan, book and pay for travel itineraries for all members. They can book through our Business Rewards page, Emirates Contact Centres or Ticket Offices or through a nominated travel agent. Administrators can also redeem rewards online for all employees in the organisation.

In addition to various booking channels and redemption options, the administrator has access to online travel management tools that will assist them in tracking Business Rewards itineraries and expenses for all members.

Administrators also receive special offers, updates about new products and services, and monthly statements. You can add more administrators at any time to make sure you stay up to date with what Business Rewards has to offer.

Earning Business Rewards Miles

To earn Business Rewards, book your flights through the Business Rewards page, or simply quote your Business Rewards number when you book through Emirates Contact Centres and Ticket Offices or your nominated travel agent. You will earn 1 Business Rewards Mile for each USD 1 spent on the base airfare, before surcharges, taxes and other industry partner charges (which are not included in Miles accrual).

Miles are calculated at the end of each month for travel completed within that month. By the 18th of the following month, they are available to spend on rewards. Miles are valid for three years from the date they are earned.

Individual members will earn Skywards Miles and your organisation will earn Business Rewards Miles on the same flight.

Spending Business Rewards Miles on flight rewards

You can spend Business Rewards Miles on flight rewards on Emirates, either for your Business Rewards members or other individuals. Flight rewards can only be booked online using the Business Rewards booking tool. They are available for one-way and return journeys and seats are subject to availability at the time of booking. Surcharges and taxes are not covered by Business Rewards Miles.

No Business Rewards Miles or Skywards Miles will be earned on Business Rewards flight rewards.

Spending Business Rewards Miles on upgrades

You can only upgrade using your Business Rewards Miles to move up one class of travel*. Upgrades are only available using Miles on purchased flights for registered members. It’s not possible to split itineraries to upgrade using Miles.

Managing travel plans

Business Rewards administrators and members can view and book their own travel itineraries online or with Emirates Contact Centres and Ticket Offices, or they can use their nominated travel agent to manage their travel. Administrators can arrange travel for all registered members.

Changes to Business Rewards itineraries can be managed through Change a Booking on emirates.com, Emirates Contact Centres and Ticket Offices or by your nominated travel agent. Any charges incurred as a result of an itinerary change should be paid for by approved payment methods.

Booking Business Rewards travel

Quote your Business Rewards number when you book through Emirates Contact Centres or Ticket Offices or your nominated travel agent to make sure you earn Business Rewards Miles. Or you can use the Business Rewards online booking tool. Payment must be made using an approved method.
