Emirates is ending complimentary chauffeur services for passengers who upgrade to first class and business using air miles.
The airline confirmed that Emirates First and Business Class Classic Reward tickets and Economy to Business Class Upgrade Rewards would no longer be eligible from March 1, 2019.
Chauffeur reservations made before March 1 will not be affected.
The airline’s air miles scheme is called Skywards.
In a statement, Emirates said:
“After a careful review of customer take-up and operational considerations, Emirates First and Business Class Classic Reward tickets and Economy to Business Class Upgrade Rewards will no longer be eligible for complimentary chauffeur drive services.
“This change is effective from 1 March 2019, when new chauffeur drive service reservations will no longer be available in conjunction with these tickets.
“Emirates Skywards members travelling on a redemption ticket will continue to enjoy lounge access, and our generous free baggage allowance based on their class of travel and tier status.”
