Sweet traditions

Celebrate this National Day with the traditional flavours of the region. On flights from Dubai, head to the A380 Onboard Lounge to taste our date and ginger cupcakes with cream cheese frosting topped with a commemorative National Day chocolate button. If you’re flying in First Class or Business Class you’ll also enjoy our special dark chocolate with Arabic coffee cream and milk chocolate with achta.

Get out of your comfort zone

Look no further for adventure than the seven Emirates. Once you've experienced the glitz and gamour of Dubai it's time to head outside the city. Visit the mountain town of Fujairah with its beautiful backdrops and the infamous Snoopy Island. Explore the Al Hajar Mountains and kayak through Hatta Dam. You'll also want to head out to the UAE's expansive deserts for some dune bashing. Outside of your comfort zone there's a whole world to explore. Unwind back at the pool for the perfect end to an adventure-packed vacation.
