Emirates has debuted Business Rewards incentive to help small and medium sized enterprises travel again as the world eases out of the pandemic.

Emirates has been supporting small and medium sized business 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 their points validity if travel plans needed to be adjusted.

Knowing their travel plans are protected, top destinations for Business Rewards program members have been frequenting during the pandemic include London, Manila, Paris, Cairo, Milan, and Beirut. Dubai also continues to be a key destination regularly visited by Business Rewards members, mainly due to its open business environment throughout the pandemic, world-class infrastructure, and thriving start-up ecosystem.

The airline continues to work hard to restore its network and schedules to enable small and medium sized businesses to visit clients and ramp up their business development activities as cities around the world gradually ease travel restrictions.

Businesses of all sizes can also ensure their health and safety expectations are taken care of throughout their journey. Emirates has lead the industry with clear, consistent and properly implemented safety measures at every touch point, including a contactless travel journey and digital verification solutions such as the IATA Travel Pass to ensure it remains the preferred airline for business travelers.

Emirates has a long track record of supporting small and medium sized businesses, not only through its Business Rewards program, but also through its procurement of products and services across the business. Hundreds of small and medium sized businesses in a range of industries from around the world have benefited from showcasing their products to a global travel audience, providing a boost to their growth plans.

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. As a result, according to the Dubai SME report 2020, which summarizes support provided to SMEs, Emirates ranked first among semi-governmental organizations, investing in procurement contracts worth over AED 79 million. It also ranked among the top five organizations supporting small to medium size businesses in Dubai.

* Customers only have to pay surcharge and airport taxes and Bonus Points for enrollment will only be for new accounts created between June 27-July 27, 2021.
