New Zealand members of Emirates’ frequent flyer programme, Skywards, now have exclusive opportunities to redeem their reward miles for tickets to matches of the world’s renowned football clubs sponsored by the airline.

This football season, tickets are available for matches played by AC Milan, Arsenal, Hamburger SV, New York Cosmos, Olympiacos, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid. General admission tickets can be redeemed starting from just 2,000 Skywards Miles.

Emirates Skywards members in premium tiers can now redeem Miles for VIP seating in designated hospitality areas and experience the games at the highest level of luxury. The redemption Miles required vary by game and football club.

All tickets are offered at a first-come first-served basis and are limited to two tickets per booking. Bookings can be done via\nz under the Skywards section.

Joining Emirates Skywards is free and members receive benefits every time they fly. There are four membership tiers - Blue, Silver, Gold and Platinum. Benefits for Skywards members include travel and lifestyle rewards, priority check-in, lounge access, extra baggage allowance and bonus Miles, depending on the membership tier.

Members earn Skywards Miles when they fly on Emirates and partner airlines and through a wide range of leisure and lifestyle partners. Skywards Miles can then be redeemed for a range of rewards such as flights on Emirates and other partner airlines including Qantas, easyJet, TAP, JetBlue and Alaska Airlines, and for flight upgrades, hotel accommodation, excursions with Arabian Adventures, and car rentals.

Next to sporting events, Miles can be used for tickets to concerts. Members can also choose to donate their Miles to a range of charity partners including The Emirates Airline Foundation and Sightsavers. Redemption opportunities are consistently being expanded.
