Make your wishes come true

The ingredients, name and presentation of food during Lunar New Year are carefully chosen to ensure good fortune. And for our customers in First Class, that means they’re in for extra special treats. Enjoy our take on lucky food on board, from a delicate white peach mochi symbolising fullness and wealth, to a lychee and raspberry mousse shaped like a traditional Chinese firecracker to drive bad luck away.

BE BY EMIRATES

The stars are in your favour

With Duty Free having a sale on board from 8 – 10 February, you get a 20% discount on purchases over USD 95. Sounds like the perfect time to find your lucky someone a gift or splurge on a treat for yourself.

  • Here’s to a sweet year ahead

    Don’t be surprised to see round fruit, especially oranges and mandarins, everywhere you go this season as their shape is believed to increase prosperity. Our Business Class customers can bite into luck with our coconut and mandarin mousse dessert served with mandarin compote. While our customers in Economy Class enjoy a double serving of good fortune with our mandarin cake with orange compote.
  • Red is the colour of luck

    The tradition of giving red envelopes filled with lucky money is widespread across Asia and is not limited to the Lunar New Year. Grandparents and parents now surprise their loved ones with these little packets for everything from birthdays to weddings. We continue the tradition with bespoke red envelopes filled with chocolate gold coins for our customers in First Class and Business Class.

Usher in prosperity together

The Lunar New Year is also known as the Spring Festival in China. It’s the country’s most important holiday and the cause of its busiest travel period. In fact, the Chinese have a term just for this rush to be home and spend the 15-day holiday with family: chunyun or spring migration.
