Emirates Skywards S7 Airlines Partnership Commenced

Emirates Skywards has commended a frequent flier partnership with Russia based Oneworld Alliance member S7 Airlines (also known as Siberia Airlines).

Emirates Skywards S7 Airlines

Emirates Skywards members can now both earn and redeem miles on flights operated by S7 Airlines. There must be similar opportunity for S7 Airlines frequent fliers as well to earn and burn on Emirates.

You can access Emirates web page for this S7 partnership here.

The number of Skywards miles earned is dependent of the S7 Airlines fare class flown:

Class of travel Miles earned for every mile flown
Discounted Economy Class (N,Q,O,M,V,T,R,S and L) 0.25 Miles
Economy Class (Y,B,H and K) 1 Mile
Business Class (J,C and D) 1.25 Miles

If your ticket is in one of the following sub-classes, it won’t be eligible to earn Miles: I, U, P, W, G, X and E.

You can use your Emirates flights for S7 Airlines return flights (no one-ways) per the chart below:

You can use your Miles for travel in either direction between the reward zones.
