How the Program Works

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

Who’s eligible?

Business Rewards is available to all small and medium-sized organizations. Participating organizations can register up to 80 members. Individual members also need to be members of Emirates Skywards® to ensure they earn personal Miles on their flights. 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 organization has one or more administrators who can plan, book, and pay for travel itineraries for all members. They can book through our Business Rewards page, Emirates Contact Centers, or Ticket Offices, or through a nominated travel agent. Administrators can also redeem rewards online for all employees in the organization.

In addition to various booking channels and redemption options, administrators have 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 everything Business Rewards has to offer.

Earning Business Rewards Miles

To earn Business Rewards, book your flights through the Business Rewards page or give your Business Rewards number when you book through Emirates Contact Centers or Ticket Offices or your nominated travel agent. You will earn 1 Business Rewards Mile for each USD1 spent on the base airfare, before surcharges, taxes, and industry partner charges (which are not included for 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 organization 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 for other individuals. Flight rewards can only be booked online using the Business Rewards booking tool. They are available for one-way and round-trip tickets; 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 one class of travel using your Business Rewards Miles.* Upgrades using Miles are only available 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 through Emirates Contact Centers or 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, at Emirates Contact Centers or Ticket Offices, or via your nominated travel agent. Any charges incurred as a result of an itinerary change should be paid by approved payment methods.

Booking Business Rewards travel

Give your Business Rewards number when you book through Emirates Contact Centers 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.
