American Express Teams Up with Emirates Skywards Programme

American Express card members enrolled in Membership Rewards, including those in New Zealand, are now able to transfer points into the Emirates Skywards programme and redeem Skywards Miles for travel on one of the world’s leading airlines.

“Emirates is known for service and innovation, two of our core values at American Express,” said Josh Silverman, president Consumer Services at American Express. 

“The partnership with American Express is a new milestone enabling us to offer the unique experience of flying with Emirates to Card Members,” said Thierry Antinori, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer, Emirates Airline. “We can reach American Express’ loyal card member base and allow them to enjoy the exclusive privileges of a rewarding frequent flyer programme.”

The award-winning Emirates Skywards programme enables members to earn and spend miles for air travel and upgrades on the Emirates network, with partner airlines, as well as with select hotels, car rental and retail partners. Next to flights and upgrades, Skywards Miles can also be redeemed for tickets to soccer games. Skywards Miles are valid for three years and can be redeemed at any time to book award travel on Emirates flights without blackout dates.
