(Edited Press Release)
To mark UN Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises Day and the vital role that they play in post-pandemic recovery, Emirates is empowering small and medium-sized enterprises to get back into the skies and turn their travel budgets into rewards by debuting a Business Rewards incentive for new members who sign up for the program.
Small and medium-sized businesses who sign up for an account to Emirates’ Business Rewards corporate loyalty program from June 27 to July 27, 2021 will receive a bonus of 10,000 Business Reward Points, the equivalent of one Economy Class return ticket to selected destinations in Europe.
Emirates currently has over 20,000 small and medium-sized businesses enrolled in its Business Rewards program, and is providing a gamut of benefits including simplified enrolment, easier earning, and redemptions, greater flexibility on retaining and using points as well as upgrade opportunities, even on last-minute bookings.
With countries easing their entry restrictions, business travel has begun accelerating, and small and medium-sized enterprises have become key drivers of demand with the flexibility to make travel plans quickly as new opportunities emerge.
Emirates has been supporting small and medium-sized businesses hit by the pandemic. Emirates Business Rewards program members are taking advantage of the airline’s flexible booking policies, which are among the most generous in the industry for stress-free travel planning, in addition to its multi-risk insurance cover. Since the outset of the pandemic, Business Rewards program members were provided additional reassurance with extensions on the validity of their points if travel plans needed to be adjusted.
In the UAE, Emirates prioritizes SMEs as part of its tendering process and is actively committed to work with government stakeholders like Dubai SME in identifying businesses and evaluating the performance of active suppliers on a regular basis.
