Emirates which is Dubai’s flagship airline will enter into a customer loyalty programme with its low-cost sister airline flydubai from August. Their expanded codeshare was announced in July last year. With this new agreement, flydubai’s existing “Open” loyalty scheme will cease to exist and Emirates Skywards loyalty programme will be applicable for both the airlines. Flydubai’s “Open” members will be enrolled into the Emirates Skywards membership from August 1 and they will continue to gain rewards when travelling with either airlines. The members will also earn Skywards Miles and Tier Miles every time they fly with Emirates. This will enhance collection and spending opportunities.
