DUBAI, UAE, 27 June 2021: To mark the United Nations’ Micro,
Small and Medium Enterprises Day, Emirates is empowering small and medium-sized
enterprises to get back into the skies and turn their travel budgets into
rewards by debuting a Business Rewards incentive for new members who sign up for the programme.
Small and medium-sized businesses who sign up for an
account to Emirates’ Business Rewards corporate loyalty programme from 27 June
to 27 July 2021 will receive a bonus of 10,000 Business Reward Points, the
equivalent of one Economy Class return ticket to selected destinations in Europe.
Emirates currently has over 20,000 small and
medium-sized businesses enrolled in its Business Rewards programme and is
providing a gamut of benefits, including simplified enrolment, easier earning
and redemptions, greater flexibility on retaining and using points, as well as
upgrade opportunities, even on last-minute bookings.
With countries easing their entry restrictions,
business travel has begun accelerating, and small to medium-sized enterprises
have become key drivers of demand with the flexibility to make travel plans
quickly as new opportunities emerge.
Emirates has been supporting small and medium-sized
business hit by the pandemic. Emirates Business Rewards programme 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 programme members were provided additional
reassurance with extensions on the validity of their point if travel plans
needed to be adjusted.
Knowing their travel plans are protected, top
destinations for Business Rewards programme 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.
Businesses of all sizes can also ensure their health and safety expectations are taken care of throughout their journey. Emirates leads the industry with clear, consistent and properly implemented safety measures at every touchpoint, including a contactless travel journey and digital verification solutions such as the IATA Travel Pass to ensure it remains the preferred airline for business travellers.
Emirates has a long track record of supporting small
and medium-sized businesses, not only through its Business Rewards programme
but also through its procurement of products and services across the business.
Hundreds of small to medium-sized businesses in a range of industries worldwide
have benefitted from showcasing their products to a global travel audience,
providing a boost to their growth plans.
