Celebrate the UAE Golden Jubilee

If you’re flying to Dubai this December you’re in for a treat. It’s the 50th UAE National Day on 2 December and there are celebrations to enjoy across the emirates to mark the forming of our home country. It’s a great chance to take part in cultural events, and we have some brilliant offers to help you explore more of the UAE on your visit. Get into the spirit before you arrive with special Emirati dishes, sweets and more in our Dubai lounges and on board to celebrate the Golden Jubilee.

A taste of Emirati culture

From 1 to 5 December, look out for the special Emirati breakfasts on our menus in every travel class. We’re cooking up some traditional egg dishes like chebab pancakes with date syrup and balaleet sweet vermicelli with omlette to share a flavour of the local UAE culture. You’ll also find little sweet treats with your meal – enjoy special Emirati pastries topped with gold leaf to mark the Golden Jubilee. And we're bathing our cabins in ambient light in the colours of the UAE flag.
