Skywards ... a year on


Skywards, the frequent flyer programme of Emirates and SriLankan airlines has grown well beyond expectations in its first year, says a company spokesman.

Members are not only travelling frequently and earning Skywards Miles, they are also benefiting from the programme's partner network of other airlines, hotels, and car rental and financial services companies.

Skywards is confidently looking forward to its second year, with more partners coming on board, more special offers and more opportunities for members, said general manager Brian LaBelle.
