Skywards Card

The sky is the limit with a new frequent flyer card. Emirates Airlines and SriLankan Airlines this week launched a worldwide card program. The new Skywards card goes beyond the basic miles-for-miles airline programs. For example, members in the elite tiers are admitted into the Skywards business Alumnus club and have access to airport lounges even if flying the economy class. The new card program comes in three levels Skywards, Skywards Silver and Skywards Gold. As it is one program for both airlines, miles flown on either Emirates or SriLankan will count towards the tier level. Miles can also be earned on partner airlines Continental Airlines, United Airlines, British Airways and South African Airways. ‘Skywards’ miles can also be earned with each usage of the ‘Skywards Citibank’ co-branded credit card. Hotel partners include Hilton, Marriott and Starwood. Other partners include Arabian Adventures and Budget Rent A Car.
