Emirates Fleet

The Emirates Skywards frequent flyer program is Emirates and flydubai’s award-winning frequent flyer program, which is now offering a new time-limited mileage promotion to all Skywards new and existing members.

This promotion is available from March 20, 2019 to March 31, 2019. Passenger reservations are made between April 10 and June 27, 2019 and September 6 to November 30, 2019 on Emirates or flydubai economy class and business class airfare.

During the promotion period, Skywards members who purchase the ticket that matches the travel date and will receive an additional mileage bonus based on the basic Skywards mileage earned on the original ticket. If a Skywards member travels multiple times on Emirates or flydubai during the period, the second ticket will receive an additional two miles award and the third ticket will receive an additional three times the mileage award.

Skywards miles earned through this event can be redeemed for Emirates or flydubai flights or upgrades.

Emirates To Resume Flights To Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban, Harare and Mauritius, Boosting Global Network To 92 Destinations



Emirates Boeing777-300er

Emirates has announced on 24 September 2020 that it will resume flights to Johannesburg (1 October), Cape Town (1 October), Durban (4 October) in South Africa; Harare in Zimbabwe (1 October); and Mauritius (3 October). The addition of the five points will expand the Emirates’ global network to 92 destinations, as the airline gradually resumes its operations while prioritising the safety of its customers, crew and the communities it serves around the world. 

Emirates’ African network will also now extend to 19 cities.

Customers flying in and out of Emirates’ three South African gateways can safely connect to Dubai and to an array of onwards connections to Europe, the Far East, Middle East, West Asia and Australasia.

  • Johannesburg (1 October) in South Africa;
  • Cape Town (1 October) in South Africa;
  • Durban (4 October) in South Africa;
  • Harare in Zimbabwe (1 October); 
  • Mauritius (3 October).

Emirates will operate to Harare with two weekly flights linked to its Lusaka service. The linked services will connect Zambia and Zimbabwe to key destinations across Europe, the Far East, the Americas, Australasia and West Asia with one convenient stop in Dubai.

Flights from Dubai to Mauritius will initially operate once a week on Saturdays, supporting the Mauritian government’s repatriation efforts to bring its citizens home, and enabling the recovery of the country’s tourism industry by safely connecting leisure travellers from Europe, the Far East and the Middle East to the popular Indian Ocean island destination. 

Customers can stop over or travel to Dubai as the city has re-opened for international business and leisure visitors. Ensuring the safety of travellers, visitors, and the community, COVID-19 PCR tests are mandatory for all inbound and transit passengers arriving to Dubai (and the UAE), including UAE citizens, residents and tourists, irrespective of the country they are coming from.
