  9. Skywards Miles belonging to Platinum tier Members will not expire for as long as the Member retains their Platinum tier status. Accordingly, an Adjusted Expiration date will be displayed to Platinum Members in cases where the Member has Skywards Miles that, as per Standard Expiration, were originally due to expire within their current tier review period.

    The Adjusted Expiration will always be a date that is two (2) months after the Member’s upcoming tier review date. For example: if a Platinum tier Member (with next tier review date of August 31 2019) has Skywards Miles due to expire on January 31 2019 as per Standard Expiry, that Member will see an Adjusted Expiry date of October 31 2019 (calculated as two (2) months after his/her upcoming tier review date).
    • As soon as a Member upgrades to the Platinum tier, the Adjusted Expiration date will be updated against any Skywards Miles that, as per Standard Expiration, were due to expire within their current Platinum tier review period. Any Skywards Miles that expired prior to the Member upgrading to the Platinum tier will not be reinstated, including in cases of retroactive claims for missing Skywards Miles which may have led to a Member upgrading to the Platinum tier prior to the expiration date.    
    • Each time a Member retains their Platinum tier status, any unused Skywards Miles that had an Adjusted Expiration date will be further extended to a date that is two (2) months after the Member’s next tier review date.
    • When a Member is unable to retain their Platinum tier status, any unredeemed Skywards Miles that benefited from an Adjusted Expiration when the Member was in the Platinum tier, will expire as per the date stated on the Member’s Emirates Skywards Account.
    • Adjusted Expiration will also apply to the portion of Skywards Miles pooled into the My Family Account by a Platinum tier Member only, irrespective of whether as a Family Head or as a Family Member.
    • Adjusted Expiration will also apply to Skywards Miles where additional validity was previously purchased through the Extend Miles or Reinstate Miles products set out in paragraph 9.

    For the avoidance of doubt, Skywards Miles will expire on the stated date of expiration, whether as per Standard Expiration or Adjusted Expiration, if the Member’s tier status displayed on emirates.com is not Platinum on said date. No exceptions will be available for Platinum tier Members who may have had Skywards Miles expire prior to the above-mentioned effective date.

  10. Tier benefits and privileges provided to a Member at each Membership Tier may be changed by Emirates Skywards at any time without notice.

7. Earning Miles

  1. Members earn Miles for Qualifying Flights or for using qualifying services of Partners on or after their enrollment date. Qualifying Flights undertaken two months prior to enrollment are eligible to accrue Miles (except flydubai flights taken prior to August 1, 2018). Partner transactions prior to the enrollment date are not eligible to accrue Skywards Miles. Skywards Miles and Tier Miles earned on Qualifying Flights can be viewed via the Miles Calculator on the Website.

  2. To earn Miles, a Member must either produce a membership card or give a membership number at the time of booking or checking in for Qualifying Flights and at the time of paying for other qualifying goods or services. No changes can be made to the membership number once a member has checked in for the first flight of an itinerary.

  3. The number of Miles earned will depend on the origin, destination, class of travel, and fare purchased. Use our Miles Calculator on emirates.com to check the exact earning values for a particular flight.

  4. Members traveling in First Class earn a Class Bonus at the rate of Base Miles + 150%; Members traveling in Business Class earn a Class Bonus at the rate of Base Miles + 75%. Class Bonuses contribute to both Skywards Miles and Tier Miles accounts.

  5. The number of Miles earned on a Cash+Miles ticket will be in proportion to the cash amount paid for a commercial fare, excluding carrier-imposed charges, taxes, and fees. Cash+Miles tickets do not qualify to earn Miles in other FFP/loyalty programs in which Emirates Skywards is a participant.

  6. Members under the age of 18 accrue Miles at the same rate as adult Members.

  7. If a Member purchases a mixed-fare and/or mixed-cabin ticket on Qualifying Flights, Miles will be credited separately for each fare component. The endorsement text or additional information area of the ticket is a partial indicator only.

  11. The following types of tickets do not qualify to earn Miles:

When making a retroactive claim, the Member must provide travel information such as ticket number, flight details on the boarding passes, transaction documents, receipts, and any other documents requested by Emirates Skywards®. Retroactive claims for missing Miles on flydubai flights must be made on the flydubai Website within six months of the date the flight was taken.

  13. Miles may only be earned for one frequent flyer program for each flight or transaction unless otherwise stated by Emirates Skywards or a Partner.

This applies to the earning of Skywards Miles as well as to other flight-related benefits (including but not limited to airport lounge access and baggage allowances) unless otherwise stated by Emirates or flydubai. A Member may change the frequent flyer number associated with a journey at check-in before the first flight commences but not at any other point thereafter. Miles can be earned only for one seat and one extra seat purchased per flight for usage by the Member. Miles may take eight weeks or more to be credited to a Member's Account from the date of the transaction. Miles earned by a Member may only be used or redeemed by that Member in accordance with these Program Rules once they have been credited to the relevant Account.

  15. Skywards Miles are awarded only for goods and services actually supplied. In particular, no Skywards Miles will be earned in connection with goods or services that have been ordered but canceled prior to utilization by a Member or in circumstances in which the Member fails to meet any obligation on his or her part in connection with the order.

  16. If a Member's Qualifying Flight is canceled, Emirates or flydubai may endorse the Member's ticket to another carrier for carriage and the Member will accrue Miles in accordance with the ticket he or she purchased.

8. Validity of Skywards Miles

  1. Skywards Miles are valid for a period of three years from the date on which a Member undertakes the relevant flight or enters into the applicable transaction with a Partner.

  2. Skywards Miles will expire (and be deducted from the Member's Account) at the end of the month of a Member's birthday on/after the third anniversary of the relevant flight or applicable transaction (“Standard Expiration”). The precise period of Standard Expiration of Skywards Miles will depend on when a Member's birthday occurs but the validity of Skywards Miles shall not be less than three years. Notwithstanding the above, any Skywards Miles belonging to a Member whose tier status on the date of Standard Expiration is Platinum will have an adjusted validity period that ends two (2) months after the Member’s upcoming tier review date (“Adjusted Expiration”) and is governed by the rules set out in paragraph 6.9 above. Unused, expired Skywards Miles, once deducted from the Member's Account, cannot be re-credited.

  3. Skywards Miles cannot be re-credited once they have expired. Emirates Skywards reserves the right to reverse or cancel any Miles credited to a Member incorrectly, or not in accordance with, or in breach of the Program Rules at any time.

  4. It is the Member's responsibility to be aware of both the Skywards Miles in his or her Account and when the Skywards Miles will expire. This can be monitored at any time online at emirates.com.

  5. Where Skywards Miles have been redeemed for a Reward which is eventually cancelled and such Skywards Miles have since expired in accordance with the Program Rules, such Skywards Miles will not be eligible for a refund or reinstatement. The only exception to the above is when, the Member’s tier status is Platinum on the date of cancelling such a Reward, in which case Skywards Miles will be credited back with an Adjusted Expiration date.

A Linked Account must have an identical first name, surname, and date of birth as the Member's Skywards Account. Emirates Skywards reserves the right in its sole discretion not to link a Member’s Account or to credit a Member’s Account under this clause 14.4 or to cancel Miles already credited to a Member’s Account under a Tipping Offer, where Emirates has reason to believe that the identity of the Member does not match the identity of the transferor or where there has been any fraudulent activity connected with the transfer or conversion in relation to the Member’s Account.

  11. At least one Family Member in addition to the Family Head must remain in the My Family account at all times for the group to remain active and eligible for promotions and special offers.

The remaining Miles balance will stay in the individual’s Emirates Skywards account. The contribution percentage can be changed at any time. Children below the age of 18 can be added to and remain a part of a My Family account only if the registered parent or guardian on their Skywards Skysurfers account is the designated Family Head. Any changes to the child's parent or guardian in the Skysurfer account may result in the child being removed from the My Family account. Until the child turns 18, the parent or guardian will decide on the Miles contribution percentage on behalf of the child.

  14. The Family Head and Family Members will earn Miles and Tier Miles in their individual Emirates Skywards account based on their individual Emirates Skywards Membership Tier.

  15. Any Miles or Tier Miles earned prior to joining My Family will remain in the individual’s Emirates Skywards account.

Flight history and other personal details will not be visible to other Family Members and will remain in the Member’s individual Emirates Skywards account.

  20. Emirates Skywards will make visible to the Family Head Cash+Miles bookings and Classic Reward bookings made by the Family Head using Miles in the My Family account, in order to allow the account to be managed efficiently.

For example, a Member who earns Miles in May 2018 and has a birthday in August will see these Miles expire from his individual Emirates Skywards account and from the My Family account on August 31, 2021. Notwithstanding the above, an Adjusted Expiration date will apply to the portion of Skywards Miles pooled in to the My Family Account by a Platinum tier Member, irrespective of whether as a Family Head or as a Family Member, as per the conditions stipulated in paragraph 6.9 above.

  25. Miles will be credited to the Member's individual Emirates Skywards account and his or her associated My Family account based on the percentage contribution he or she sets in the My Family account.

  26. Miles contributions to the My Family account cannot be backdated for travel taken or services provided prior to the date the Member joined My Family.
