Emirates is bringing back its Iftar service for customers travelling during Ramadan.
The special boxes have been re-designed and 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 service is available for the whole month of Ramadan expected to begin on 6 June this year. The menus feature 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. On certain routes, these boxes will be offered to customers prior to Imsak.
Both variations of boxes will feature a box of dates. During the holy month, cold meals will be served in lieu of a hot one on all flights to Jeddah and Medina, including Umrah day flights.
