New Delhi, Feb 12 IBNS | 6 months ago

Emirates has celebrated the launch of its daily Boston flights with the Bonus Miles Countdown promotion from Emirates Skywards, its award-winning frequent flyer programme.


Flights will commence on Mar 10, marking Emirates' eighth route to the United States.

Bookers of Boston flights during the promotion will be able to maximise their earning potential with up to 36,000 bonus miles for a return trip.

The earlier the booking date and the higher the class of travel, the more bonus Miles will be earned, the company said in a statement.

Emirates Skywards Members must book their travel between Feb 13 and Feb 22 to participate in this promotion whilst travel must take place between Mar 10 and June 30.

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 8 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.

"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," said Brian LaBelle Senior Vice President Emirates Skywards.

"Over 10 million members are already earning Miles on every Emirates flight they take to one of our 141 destinations worldwide," he added.

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 1515hrs. The return flight, EK 238, will take off from Boston at 2255hrs and land in Dubai at 1910hrs the following day.
