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.
This year’s Ramadan meal boxes feature intricate geometrical patterns and forms inspired by Sadu, the traditional Bedouin art of weaving.
Creating blankets, tents, camel saddles and other practical items for their community, Sadu weavers would gather in small groups and help each other in the weaving process. And as they weave, they share news about their families, sing and even recite poetry together.
The design of our meal boxes reflect this spirit of togetherness and generosity, in keeping with the spirit of the holy 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.
Impress the family with your culinary skills this Ramadan and recreate a tasty Emirates dish. You can find our recipes here on emirates.com or watch our chefs in action on the Emirates Food Channel on your inflight entertainment. If you’re breaking the fast, taking suhoor, or cooking for iftar, why not try our chefs’ recipes for nourishing Arabic soup, spicy prawn machbous, or creamy lamb biryani?
