Emirates Brings Back Iftar Service For Ramadan
Emirates is bringing back its Iftar service for customers travelling during the holy month of Ramadan. The special boxes will be available across all cabin classes on select flights including those to and from the Gulf region as well as Umrah groups travelling to Jeddah and Medina.
The Iftar boxes will allow those observing Ramadan to break their fast with a nutritious and balanced meal. The service has been a mainstay on Emirates flights for over 20 years and is available for the whole month of Ramadan expected to begin on 6 June this year.
This year’s Ramadan boxes will have a new menu designed by Emirates’ chefs. These menus feature a Middle Eastern flavour, while remaining distinctly global, and will be refreshed mid-Ramadan.
The Iftar box includes options such as za’atar chicken with hummus, spinach fatayer, halloumi cheese and cucumber sandwiches, traditional sweets such as mammoul and dates, as well as yoghurt.
A snack box will also be provided at boarding gates allowing customers to break their fast prior to boarding or while boarding.
The snack boxes will feature pastries like cheese fatayer and Arabic sweets like baklava and will be served for flights departing close to Iftar at Emirates’ hub in Dubai International Airport Terminal 3. On certain routes, these boxes will be offered to customers prior to Imsak.
