Emirates and Azul Linhas Aereas Brasileiras S.A (Azul) will add a reciprocal loyalty programme to its current codesharing arrangement.
This initiative extends the 2021 codeshare partnership, opening up further benefits for frequent flyers in both the Emirates Skywards and TudoAzul programmes.
Seamless Network of Rewards
With this partnership, Emirates Skywards and TudoAzul members can now seamlessly earn and redeem Miles across a joint network spanning over 290 destinations worldwide.
The codeshare agreement, initiated to enhance connectivity to and from eight key cities in Brazil through Sao Paulo, has naturally evolved into a robust loyalty programme.
Dr. Nejib Ben Khedher, Divisional Senior Vice President of Emirates Skywards, expressed enthusiasm, stating,
“We’re very pleased to be announcing a new partnership with Azul, the largest airline in Brazil. Skywards members can now rack up even more Miles while discovering hundreds of cities across Brazil and South America.”
The Azul Advantage
Azul members, in turn, gain access to a vast network, earning and redeeming miles on more than 130 destinations across Emirates’ global reach.
Cristina Yoshida, Director of Loyalty Program & Ancillary Revenue at Azul, highlighted the significance of this collaboration, saying,
“Our partnership with Emirates, a company globally recognized for its excellence in service, means a significant progress in our mission to provide memorable experiences to the customers.”
“Earn and Burn”
Under this innovative agreement, Emirates Skywards members can earn Miles while traversing Azul’s extensive network of more than 150 destinations.
In Economy class, members earn up to 1 Skywards Mile per mile flown, and in Business Class, the reward increases to up to 1.5 Skywards Miles per mile flown.
Redeeming flight rewards becomes a seamless process, with options for Azul Economy Class starting from 8,000 Miles for a one-way reward ticket, and Azul Business Class starting from 17,500 Miles for a similar reward ticket.
Emirates Connecting Brazil
Emirates, known for its A380 service to Sao Paulo and Boeing 777-300ER service to Rio de Janeiro, solidifies its commitment to connecting Brazil to the world.
The codeshare agreement facilitates smooth connections to and from various Brazilian cities, providing a hassle-free experience for travelers.
With over 30 million members worldwide, Emirates Skywards stands tall as a top-ranking loyalty programme. Offering four tiers of membership – Blue, Silver, Gold, and Platinum – each tier comes with exclusive privileges.
From airport lounge access and instant flight upgrades to priority check-in and boarding, members enjoy a plethora of benefits.
Emirates Skywards continues to shine in the loyalty landscape, having won more than 50 awards, including “Best Earning and Redemption Ability” at the 2023 Frequent Traveler Awards.
The programme’s consistency is evident, with it securing the title of the “World’s Leading Rewards Programme” at the prestigious 2023 World Travel Awards for 10 out of the last 12 years.
