Extend the validity of your miles for up to one year…

Sitting on a massive pile of Skywards Miles that are about to expire? We know the feeling.

Usually you’d have to peruse the Emirates High Street website for something to spend them on, or use them to book a last minute trip to Oman for the weekend – neither of which are always the most convenient options.

Well, now Emirates is offering its Skywards members the ability to to pay to extend the their points for up to a year beyond the original expiry date.

The move was announced in an e-mail sent by Emirates to members of its Skywards loyalty programme which noted that they can extend the life of their miles for US$20 (approx. Dhs73) per 1,000 Skywards Miles, for up to 12 months.

A total of 50,000 miles can be extended each year, with extensions purchasable for up to three months prior to the date of expiration.
