Emirates Skywards, the loyalty programme of Dubai-based carriers Emirates and flydubai, said on Thursday that it would offer an extension on all tier status reviews scheduled for 2021, by an additional 12 months.

Emirates Skywards Silver and Gold members with a tier review date prior to December 31, 2021, will have their current tier status extended by an additional twelve months.

Emirates Skywards Platinum members with a tier review date prior to December 31, 2021, will also have their current tier status extended by twelve months, in addition to the Gold status of any nominee. 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.

The loyalty programme has also further extended the validity of any Skywards Miles due to expire since April 2020 until June 30, 2021.

Skywards Miles can be redeemed up to eleven months in advance for a range of rewards, including flight tickets on Emirates, and upgrades too.

On Emirates, customers who purchase a ticket for travel on or before June 31, 2021, can change their travel dates or extend the ticket validity for two years.

In a press statement, Emirates confirmed that the Emirates Skywards will also be rolling out further initiatives throughout the year to help members retain tier status, or fast-track it to a higher tier status.

The loyalty programme has more than 27 million members worldwide and four tiers of membership: Blue, Silver, Gold and Platinum.
