SEASONAL OCCASIONS

Ramadan

Share the spirit of Ramadan

Whether you’re meeting up with loved ones at home or travelling this Ramadan, we wish you peace, health and happiness wherever you are in the world. In the spirit of the Islamic holy month, we’re providing our fasting customers with specially designed Ramadan boxes before iftar on the ground and inflight on selected routes.

Before you fly

We’re serving seasonal dishes, snacks and desserts in our First Class and Business Class lounges in Dubai. Relax between iftar and suhoor while you savour a rich lamb ouzi or shish taouk with harissa red pepper dip. Or indulge in a delicious kunafa with pistachio and baklava ice cream and esh el bulbul chocolate. You can also try our Arabic coffee and dates ice cream and karabeej mad pistachio all day long.

Breaking your fast

If you’re fasting for Ramadan, and iftar falls during departure or on your flight, we’re offering special services to help you break your fast.

At the boarding gate, we’ll give you one of our Ramadan boxes packed with water, dates, juice and a banana. On board, the special meal box contains a nutritious meal and a drink for you to enjoy inflight or take with you when you land.

What’s on this month

While you relax on your journey, you can choose our special Ramadan selection on ice inflight entertainment with specific religious programmes throughout the holy month. 

Watch episodes of Hadeeth Al Emam Al Tayeb, Nawafez Aala Al Hayat, Deen Al Tasamoh, Qu’ran Mubeen and Meythaq Al Hayat. Or check out content in Urdu, including Mahe Ramadan, Ramadan Ki Fazilat, Noor E Ramzan and Niyamat E Ramadan.
