Emirates and partner carrier Flydubai have launched a new double tier miles offer on flights taken by the end of the year.

All flights booked by June 30 (for travel by December 31, 2021) across the carriers’ combined networks, will attract double tier miles.

The offer follows the recent 12-month extension to the validity of statuses within the Skywards programme. As an example, if a member has a current tier review date on March 31, 2021, their new tier review date will be extended to March 31, 2022.

Emirates and Flydubai first announced plans for an extensive codeshare and FFP partnership back in 2017. The following year Flydubai joined the Skywards programme, replacing its previous Open scheme.

Several carriers including British Airways and Virgin Atlantic have further extended benefits within their frequent flyer programmes in recent months, in recognition of the grounding of most flights in 2020, and the uncertainty remaining over a return to global travel.
