How to earn Elevate points:
You earn Elevate points with Emirates based on the type of fare you purchase and the distance you fly. So the further you go, the more points you earn. Just make sure to check at the time of booking to see if your class of travel is eligible for Elevate points, and remember to include your Elevate number when you book. Visit to choose your destination, check flight availability, and grab a seat. Please note: only flights marketed and operated by Emirates are eligible for earning Elevate points. Unfortunately, we're unable to award Elevate points for flights operated by Emirates code-share partners.

The table below shows the number of points you earn for each mile traveled in each Emirates class of service.

Economy Class Skywards Saver fare B, G, H, K, L, M, Q, T, U, V, X 20%
Economy Class Skywards Flex fare E, R, W, Y 40%
Business Class C, I, J, P, O 60%
First Class A, F 80%

Points you could earn for an Emirates flight::
For example, if you fly on Emirates from San Francisco (SFO) to Dubai (DXB) round trip in Economy Class on a Skywards Flex fare, you would earn:
Base Miles (Round trip, SFO - DXB) - 16,206
Economy Class Skywards Flex fare - 40% of Miles flown
Total Elevate points earned: 6,483 Elevate points

Can I claim points from a previous flight?
If you're already an Elevate member, any Emirates flight you've taken on or after October 17, 2013 is eligible for Elevate points. You have six months from the date of your flight to request a credit to your Elevate account. To get started, give us a ring at 1.877.FLY.VIRGIN (1.877.359.8474) and we'll be happy to help.
