Members of Emirates Skywards, the award-winning loyalty programme of Emirates and flydubai, can use travel and shopping spends from their summer holiday this year to earn more Skywards Miles that can get them closer to their next dream getaway.

Miles earned through Emirates Skywards special offers can be redeemed for flights on Emirates, flydubai and other partner airlines or can be used to access a variety of retail and lifestyle rewards.

Emirates Skywards members will now be able to earn Miles when shopping for their favourite fashion and lifestyle brands at more than 1,300 boutiques across The Bicester Village Shopping Collection located in Europe and China.
