Explore Tier Benefits

Once you are a member, there are two easy ways to move up a tier. You can either

  • collect the required number of Tier Miles by flying with Emirates; or
  • complete the number of Emirates flights needed to reach the next level.

Each new tier brings inviting benefits that increase in value, such as dedicated check-in, priority boarding, and lounge access. Once you have been promoted to a new tier, you enjoy membership privileges for 14 months, even if you don’t earn enough miles or take enough flights to retain the tier status in your annual review.
