Standard Chartered and UAE-based airline Emirates have introduced a co-branded debit card in Pakistan with various benefits and privileges.

The Emirates Standard Chartered Debit Card members will be able to earn Skyward Miles on everyday purchases, including dining, online shopping and petrol.

Cardholders also get better earning rates for reward points on booking tickets for Emirates flights, along with a variety of travel benefits such as access to airport lounges and transfers in Pakistan.

Standard Chartered Pakistan CEO Shazad Dada said: “Our experience with Emirates has been filled with excitement, success, and innovation, for us and our clients.

“We endeavour to deliver products and services based on the needs and aspirations of our clients and truly believe that with the Emirates Standard Chartered debit card your best travel experience is closer than you think.”

Emirates vice-president Pakistan Jabr Al Azeeby said: “Our journey in Pakistan has been defined by progressive investment, partnership, and growth.

“This partnership with Standard Chartered and the launch of our co-branded debit card will go a long way in further enhancing the travel experience of our Pakistani customers.”

Last year, the organisations jointly launched a co-branded credit card that is available in Infinite and Platinum variants in Pakistan.
