We look forward to strengthening our strategic partnership with Emirates over the coming years to deliver additional value to our customers."
Dr. Nejib Ben Khedher, Divisional Senior Vice President at Emirates Skywards, said: "We are committed to forging sound partnerships and ensuring our members have an increasing number of opportunities and options to earn and spend Skywards Miles. Our 1.7+ million members in the UAE can take advantage of our ADIB partnership to earn Skywards Miles on their everyday spends, and earn rewards even faster. Being an Emirates Skywards member is more rewarding than ever, and our 150+ partners are a testament to that."
