ASMALLWORLD enters partnership with Emirates Skywards to expand its Prestige and Signature membership offering

Zurich, 08.08.2022 – Today, ASMALLWORLD announced that it has entered a partnership with Emirates Skywards, the award-winning loyalty programme of Emirates, the world’s largest international airline, and flydubai. Starting from September 2022, customers of ASMALLWORLD’s best-selling Prestige and Signature memberships will be able to earn 250’000 or 500’000 Skywards Miles, which in turn can be used for exclusive travel benefits including flight rewards and upgrades with Emirates. Adding Emirates Skywards as a third airline loyalty programme will further expand the market for the Prestige and Signature memberships and is expected to contribute to ASMALLWORLD’s profitable growth going forward.

ASMALLWORLD’s Prestige membership, and especially the Miles & More option, has proven very popular with customers, especially with frequent flyers who use miles as payment for flights and flight upgrades. The new Emirates Skywards option will expand the target market for these memberships in the Middle East and globally, and will continue to add to the profitable growth of ASMALLWORLD in the coming years.

The ASMALLWORLD Prestige membership can be purchased for EUR 5’200 and the updated Signature Membership will be offered for EUR 9’990 starting in September, when the Emirates option will be available.

"We are excited to add Emirates Skywards to our Prestige and Signature memberships and offer our customers greater variety when choosing the travel package that is right for them. Emirates is one of the world’s largest airlines with a diverse international customer base, and offering Skywards Miles as part of our membership will help us to attract new customers with these products," comments ASMALLWORLD CEO Jan Luescher.
