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 program; it is open to organizations of all sizes around the world. As a member, your organization will earn Business Rewards Points whenever your employees or guest travelers fly on Emirates, which you can then spend on Dynamic Reward flights and upgrades. Individuals can also earn Skywards Miles on the same flight if they’re Emirates Skywards members. There’s no limit on how many employees can join the program and no minimum travel spending to join.
Emirates Business Rewards is open to any organization, but it’s designed to offer benefits to small and medium-sized organizations that don’t have corporate travel agreements with Emirates. It can also be used to complement any other travel agreements that may be in place.
We have a range of commercial products to meet the needs of our corporate customers. If the travel volumes of your organization qualify for a corporate travel agreement, you can still join Emirates Business Rewards and make your business travel even more rewarding.
Yes, you can register your organization under two different names, as long as you have a different trade license number for each.

A Program Administrator is the person who registers your organization into the Emirates Business Rewards program. That person should be an employee of the organization or a designated travel manager.
