Emirates Skywards membership tiers
A "qualifying flight" is a flight from origin to destination, on Emirates, on flydubai, or on a codeshare flight marketed by Emirates but operated by another airline.
Your origin is the airport where you start your journey, and your destination is the final airport where you complete your journey. So a qualifying flight could be a complete inbound or outbound leg of a round-trip journey or a one-way flight. Stopovers are not counted as destinations.
