Emirates: Skywards status extended until 2022

Emirates: Skywards status extended until 2022

With flying much reduced across all airlines, frequent flyer schemes are having to extend benefits to keep their premium flyers happy. Most have already extended the status of their top-tier fliers by a year or so, including Qantas and Virgin.

Emirates is following suit with the sliver, gold and platinum status members of their Skywards frequent flyer scheme

Status & miles extended

For platinum, gold and silver members with status running out prior to the end of December 2021, then you can add another 12 months, taking you into 2022. For platinum’s – the gold status of your nominee is also extended

The validity of your Skywards Miles has also been extended, if they are due to expire anywhere between April 2020 to 30 June 2021. Further, for tickets booked before 30 June 2021, you can change dates or extend the ticket up to 2 years

Emirates is also promising the following incentives:

‘Members can look forward to a year of delightful surprises including bonus tier miles, complimentary tier upgrades, paid tier opportunities, and many more exclusive offers.’

Emirates Business Class

My experience of Emirates is confined to a return flight to Bangkok on an A380. The experience was pretty good if a little hospitality by numbers. If you are interested follow the link to the full review.

The aviation industry has a difficult road ahead when it comes to sustainability. It’s going to require a relative revolution in technology, with ‘electric planes’ or hydrogen planes, or some form of jet engine that doesn’t require a carbon based fuel. And that is going to require the development of an alternative to jet engines probably.

It’s a big ask. It will take time to develop.

This move to home grown and manufactured SAF is a first step – maybe even a baby step in a very long road of innovation. In the long run, US$200 million won’t even touch the sides.

These extensions and proposed incentives are in line with what most airlines’ frequent flyers schemes are offering to retain their top-tier customers. This is good news if you are one of the 27 million Skywards members.
