The frequent flyer program of the airline company Emirates is known under the name Emirates Skywards. This program is for loyal travelers who fly often with the Emirates and thus collect Skywards Miles. The Skywards Miles are gained by the travelers through a four-step frequent-flyer program, which is operated and handled by the Emirates company. Skywards Miles are collected by more than 8.5 million customers and goes like that: the three primary tiers are Blue, followed by the Silver which requires 25 000 tier miles to enter the program, followed by Gold which needs 50 000 tier miles for the entry. The last level is the Platinum Tier with 150 000 Skywards Miles for the entry in the program.
