Emirates has quietly launched a new paid Skywards+ subscription, as discussed on Flyertalk forums (access here).
Select Skywards members can buy yearly subscription for roughly $299 that allows them to earn more award and elite qualifying miles.
You can access Emirates here.
Here’s what a Flyertalk members reported on his post (access here):

I have not been able to find a landing page on the Emirates website for this offer. I guess that they want only select members to subscribe for it.
This offer could be beneficial for some that could use it to requalify with fewer tier miles while earning some bonus ones in the process.
