Emirates Spices up Christmas with Special Menus and Contents

Emirates has loaded its flights full of treats for everyone this holiday season: from delicious Christmas menus, luxurious amenities, and cool gifting ideas to festive movies and music playlists.

Festive meals and treats

Fill up on roast turkey drizzled with cranberry jus lié, served with peas, roast potatoes, and pan fried smoked chicken sausage. Round off the feast with a chocolate mousse with mandarin compote topped with a festive chocolate button.

If you’re travelling in First and Business class, your Christmas dinner begins with lemon and herb king prawns served with fennel salad and cocktail sauce, or a classic salmon gravadlax. Then delve into roast turkey with chestnut stuffing, turkey bacon, paprika potatoes, and creamy Brussels sprouts with a cranberry jus lié. Finish with a choice of delicious festive dessert.

Sip on a velvety hot chocolate while watching your favourite Christmas movie, and on 24 and 25 December, everyone onboard can take home a little baked treat with our compliments.

Emirates Lounges in Dubai are offering a range of Christmas delights, including roasted turkey, Christmas stollen, Christmas fruit pudding with cherry compote, or roasted pear with ginger crumble and diplomat cream.

Christmas dishes are also available in some Emirates Lounges outside Dubai, including London Heathrow, Rome and Cairo.

Passengers flying in the Economy class may also be able to enjoy Emirate’s signature Lounge experience for a small fee. Click here for more information.

Gift ideas for loved ones

Do your last minute duty free gift shopping from the comfort of your seat, or better yet, pre-order from EmiratesRed and have your purchases delivered at your seat, ready for gifting.

Emirates Official Store has launched a beautiful Christmas collection of branded merchandise including new baubles made from recycled materials and other tree decorations, snuggly jumpers and matching PJs, stocking and wrapping papers with matching prints and more.

Special memories and limited-edition giveaways:

Emirates’ crew will gladly snap a polaroid of your special moments onboard with your family or friends and present it in a festive frame as a travel keepsake.

This season, First and Business class passengers can take home Emirates new amenity kit bags featuring fresh fragrances and new pamper products from Italian luxury brand Bulgari. Economy class passengers can take home kit bags inspired by Expo 2020 Dubai, and packed with comforts including socks, eyeshades, a dental kit and handy bookmark.

Young travellers up to 12 years old can also look forward to collecting a range of new Expo2020 inspired toys and bags, featuring Emirates’ Little Traveller pilots and cabin crew.

Movies and music

Get into the festive mood with holiday-themed boarding music as you settle into your seat, and then continue your musical journey on Emirates’ extensive library of audio channels on ice. Then watch a heart-warming film on Emirates ice.

Festive TV choices include The Great Christmas Bake Off 2020, Scooby-Doo! Haunted Holidays, Friends: The Christmas Episodes, Big Bang Theory: The Christmas Episodes, Christmas in New York: Inside the Plaza, and The Office Christmas Special.
