Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Emirates and Emirates Skywards

Emirates Skywards is the frequent flyer program for Emirates. There are three tiers: Blue, Silver, Gold and Platinum.

The Emirates website is here if you want to find out more.  If you need to top up your account, the link to purchase Skywards miles is here.

Emirates Skywards does not have its own UK credit card but you can transfer points earned from American Express Platinum (high fee, high bonus), American Express Preferred Rewards Gold (free for a year, good bonus) and Amex Rewards Credit Card (no fee, small bonus!).
