One lucky winner will be announced every week for the next three weeks. To enter the competition, go to Emirates’ Facebook page at www.facebook.com/emirates

“Emirates Skywards is all about rewarding our loyal customers and enhancing their travel experiences,” said Thierry Antinori, Emirates’ Executive Vice President, Passenger Sales Worldwide. “Now we are offering members the ultimate reward – flights to the destination of their choice anywhere on the Emirates network with their friends or family members.

“It is said that a journey is best measured in friends, rather than miles. With the chance to take five friends to one of 132 destinations in 77 countries on the Emirates’ network, the winners of our Meet Me There competition can look forward to experiencing a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.”

It is free to join Emirates Skywards and members receive benefits every time they fly. There are four membership tiers – Blue, Silver, Gold and Platinum – the last being a new tier that has been introduced to offer additional benefits to reward the most frequent travellers. Benefits for Skywards members include travel and lifestyle rewards, priority check-in, lounge access, extra baggage allowance and bonus Miles, depending on the membership tier.

Members earn Skywards Miles when they fly on Emirates and partner airlines and through a wide range of leisure and lifestyle partners. Skywards Miles can be redeemed for a range of rewards such as flights on Emirates and other partner airlines including easyJet, TAP, JetBlue and Alaska Airlines, and for flight upgrades, hotel accommodation, excursions with Arabian Adventures, car rentals and shopping on The Emirates High Street.

Emirates Skywards members can now redeem their Miles for experiences such as tickets to football matches played by Emirates’ sponsored teams, PSG, Real Madrid, Arsenal and Hamburg SV, as well as events such as the Emirates Airline Dubai Jazz Festival. Members can also choose to donate their Miles to a range of charity partners including The Emirates Airline Foundation, Sightsavers International, Dubai Cares, Friends of Cancer Patients, and CARE International.

The competition is open until 2nd April 2013.  Contestants can enter up to five times by opening another ticket and choosing five new friends and a different destination in another continent. Winners will be picked at random from all valid entries submitted. For full terms and conditions go to the competition app via Emirates’ Facebook page.

Emirates launched its Facebook page in March 2012, attracting over 1.3 million fans in the first 12 months. Fans can also join Emirates online at Google+ and YouTube.
