Emirates - Now First Class by a Mile

Many New Zealand members of Skywards, the award-winning frequent flyer programme for Emirates, will now be able to upgrade to First Class to or from Australia, by simply redeeming one Skywards Mile.

The upgrade will be possible if they book Business Class between Tuesday (July 18) and September 28 for travel between August 1 and September 30.

Emirates' New Zealand manager, Chris Lethbridge, said: "This is an enormous benefit, and one which shows the value of belonging to Skywards.

"It provides Business Class travellers with an excellent opportunity to sample the superior style, space and standards that Emirates First Class provides and which makes the airline an international leader in premium travel."

The offer is available on all four return flights a day between New Zealand to Australia - Emirates flies daily from Auckland to Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, as well as daily from Christchurch to Sydney, en route to Dubai and beyond.

Membership of Skywards is free to people who fly on Emirates; right from their first flight.
