Summer just got cooler with Emirates’ complimentary ice cream service
14 June 2018, Dubai UAE – This summer travel season, Emirates is serving complimentary ice cream to all its customers at Dubai International Airport. Ice cream cups will be given out at the Terminal 3 departure and transit areas from 15 June to 31 August for customers travelling from or through Dubai.
The ice cream, branded Emperor, is made in-house by Emirates Flight Catering (EKFC) and the airline expects to serve two million cups of ice cream to its customers over the next 3 months. Customers can look out for Emirates branded ice cream carts placed throughout the departure and transit areas of Terminal 3 and choose from five flavours: Chocolate, Vanilla, Date & Arabic Coffee, Mango Sorbet, and Lemon Sorbet. The cool treats will be served during peak departure times every day - between 12am and 3am, 12:30pm and 2:30pm, and 6pm and 9pm.
Emirates continually invests to provide an unmatched travel experience, and this simple but cool initiative is a reflection of its commitment to delighting customers. Emirates’ popular Emperor ice-cream is currently also served in premium classes on select flights to Europe and the UK, and in the seven Emirates lounges at Dubai International Airport.
