Note: Emirates Skywards was re-added as an American Express Membership Rewards partner on 1st June 2020. See our article here for details.

Only three weeks ago we were reporting that Standard Chartered had removed Malaysia Enrich miles from its list of frequent flyer programme transfer partners, and today it’s more unfortunate news with one less option for American Express cardholders – Emirates Skywards Miles.

From today, you can no longer transfer American Express Membership Rewards points into Emirates Skywards miles, including those earned through:

  • The Platinum Card
  • The Platinum Credit Card
  • The Platinum Reserve Credit Card
  • The Rewards Card
  • The Gold Card
  • The Centurion Card

The SIA American Express KrisFlyer co-brand cards continue to offer automatic monthly miles transfer exclusively to the Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer programme.
