Emirates, the Dubai-based air carrier is celebrating the launch of its daily Boston flights with the Bonus Miles Countdown promotion from Emirates Skywards, its award-winning frequent flyer programme. According to a company statement, the flights commence on March 10, 2014 marking Emirates’ eighth route to the US.
Flyers of Boston flights during the promotion will be able to maximise their earning potential with up to 36,000 bonus Miles* (Bonus Miles Countdown Promotion: The following bonus Miles chart applies to return trips booked to/from Boston with bonus Miles by date booked and class of travel) for a return trip. The earlier the booking date and the higher the class of travel, the more bonus Miles will be earned. Emirates Skywards Members must book their travel between February 13-22 to participate in this promotion whilst travel must take place between March 10 to June 2014.
The flight will be operated by a Boeing 777-200LR and brings Emirates, winner of the Skytrax ‘World’s Best Airline’ 2013 award, into Boston Logan International Airport. The aircraft will offer eight luxurious private suites in First Class, 42 deeply reclining Business Class seats, and plenty of room to relax in Economy Class with over 210 seats. Customers in all classes will be able to enjoy gourmet-chef prepared food, while browsing through more than 1,600 channels of movies, TV, music and games on the ice Digital Widescreen in-flight entertainment system.
Brian LaBelle Senior Vice President Emirates Skywards said: “We look forward to welcoming passengers on board our Boston flights to experience the excellent service and enjoy the benefits of Emirates Skywards, our frequent flyer programme. The programme takes members far beyond the immediate travel experience, rewarding passenger loyalty with privileges, benefits and a wide choice of redemptions. Over ten million members are already earning Miles on every Emirates flight they take to one of our 141 destinations worldwide”.
Members of Emirates Skywards can redeem their earned Miles for an extensive range of rewards. Redemption options include hotel accommodation, access to top sporting events, excursions and exclusive shopping, as well as flights and upgrades. Every Emirates flight earns Miles, and the growing alliance of partner airlines in the US, including JetBlue, Alaska Airlines and Virgin America, means that passengers can quickly earn enough Miles for travel or upgrades. A round-trip in Economy Class from Dubai to Boston for example can be redeemed for as little as 72,500 Skywards Miles.
Emirates Skywards also permits Miles to be used by friends and family and are earned on every Emirates flight and on every fare bringing more rewards to customers and their loved ones. EK237 will depart Dubai at 0945hrs and arrive in Boston at 1515 hours. The return flight, EK 238, will take off from Boston at 2255 hours and land in Dubai at 1910 hours the following day. To take advantage of the Miles Countdown promotion, Emirates Skywards members must register on emirates.com.
Emirates Skywards, the award-winning frequent flyer programme from Emirates, offers four tiers of membership – Blue, Silver, Gold and Platinum – with each tier providing exclusive privileges. Members earn Skywards Miles whenever they fly on Emirates and partner airlines, or when they use the programme’s designated hotels, car rentals, financial, leisure and lifestyle partners. Skywards Miles can be redeemed for an amazing range of flight, leisure and lifestyle rewards. Launched in 2000, Emirates Skywards continues to attract new members extending its membership base to over 10 million members and territories worldwide.
