Although Emirates is not a member of the three global airline alliances, it has direct partnerships with many airlines so Skywards members can enjoy cross-carrier benefits. These include Japan Airlines, Korean Air, Malaysia Airlines, Qantas, Jetstar, South African Airways, and Virgin America. Emirates Skywards has also partnered with the loyalty program of Starwood Hotels and Resorts (Preferred Guest) to enable members to earn both Skywards Miles and Starpoints.
