Enjoy Arabic coffee, dates and traditional sweets at our Dubai lounges throughout the month of Ramadan. We’ll also be serving dates and water for those breaking fast or taking suhoor at selected boarding gates. And we’ve prepared a healthy assortment of sandwiches, salads and sweets for you to break your fast on board. Water, dates and laban complete the special Ramadan box designed by local design house Silsal, exclusively for Emirates.
To celebrate Eid, our First Class passengers will find a box of Lakrids Crispy Rose in their goodie baskets. A choice of special ice cream flavours like date, cinnamon baklava and Arabic coffee and date will also be available in First Class and Business Class.
When visiting the UAE and other countries that observe Ramadan, you’ll hear some common words throughout the month. ‘Suhoor’ is the last meal before sunrise, when fasting begins for the day. This is followed by ‘Imsak’, an interval of about 10 minutes between Suhoor and ‘Fajr’, the first prayer of the day. ‘Iftar’, literally “break fast”, is the first meal taken after sunset, when fasting ends.
