Emirates' passengers are in for a treat this February with a specially curated selection of festive Lunar New Year goodies.
Passengers travelling from Dubai to Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Zhengzhou, Yinchuan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Taipei and Hanoi can indulge in Emirates’ exclusive Lunar New Year offerings onboard and in airport lounges in Dubai and select destinations.
From 15-17 Feb, travellers can revel in festivity thousands of feet above the ground. First and Business Class passengers on some routes will receive a red packet with two chocolate coins.
Before takeoff, premium customers can tuck into an assortment of Chinese dishes at the seven Emirates lounges found in Dubai International Airport from 15-18 February.
Delicacies such as vegetable and dried shrimp dumplings will be served alongside Si Xi meatballs with Bok Choy in red meat sauce, coconut sago pudding and fortune cookies.
Lunar New Year is a celebration of family, fun and most notably, feasting. It is celebrated in countries and territories like China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia and Vietnam.
The festive spread is the latest menu to be introduced onboard Emirates' flights. The airline has previously developed seasonal menus for occasions such as Christmas, Diwali and Oktoberfest.
