Emirates sent me details of some aggressive sale fares that are available from Stockholm. The First and business class fares must be booked before the 18th July for travel by 10th December. Economy tickets are also valid from 11 January to 23 February 2015.
To save me retyping a huge table, here is a screenshot of the email they sent me:
The exchange rate to the Kroner is currently 11.6.
This means – in Emirates business class – you get some fantastic deals:
Dubai – £1,371
Bangkok – £1,426
The Maldives – £1,561
Cape Town – £1,703
Emirates runs a Boeing 777-300ER to Stockholm, so you won’t get to experience the on-board bar. The business class seats to Dubai are also angled lie flat and NOT fully flat. First Class has fully flat seats but not private suites.
How to earn Emirates Skywards miles from UK credit cards (April 2021)
Emirates Skywards does not have a UK credit card. However, you can earn Emirates Skywards miles by converting Membership Rewards points earned from selected UK American Express cards. These are:
- American Express Preferred Rewards Gold (review here, apply here) – sign-up bonus of 20,000 Membership Rewards points converts into 20,000 Emirates Skywards miles. This card is FREE for your first year and also comes with two free airport lounge passes.
- The Platinum Card from American Express (review here, apply here) – sign-up bonus of 30,000 Membership Rewards points converts into 30,000 Emirates Skywards miles

Membership Rewards points convert at 1:1 into Emirates Skywards miles which is an attractive rate. The cards above all earn 1 Membership Rewards point per £1 spent on your card, which converts to 1 Emirates Skywards mile. The Gold card earns double points (2 per £1) on all flights you charge to it.
