Experience a taste of the festivities on board and in our lounges in Dubai from 11 to 17 February. 

Sweet celebration

Red is the colour of energy, happiness and luck. We hope to bring you all three this Lunar New Year. Enjoy special Asian dishes in our Dubai lounges. Then indulge in our special red velvet lychee cake for dessert in First Class and Business Class, or a red velvet lychee mousse in Economy Class. Celebrate Lunar New Year on flights from Dubai to selected destinations across Asia from 11 to 17 February. 

You’re in luck

The tradition of giving red envelopes filled with lucky money is widespread across Asia and not just for Lunar New Year. Grandparents and parents now surprise their loved ones with these little packets for everything from birthdays to weddings. We’re continuing the tradition with a bespoke red envelope filled with chocolate gold coins for our customers in First Class and Business Class on flights from Dubai to selected destinations in Asia.

Get in the festive spirit

Enjoy up to 50 movies in Mandarin and 25 in Cantonese on your way to the festivities, or choose from over 230 movies dubbed in Chinese languages. This Lunar New Year you can watch up to 27 Chinese movies, including – Vampire Cleanup Department, Missing, Best Director and Lucky Boy. You can also listen to over 120 Chinese playlists and albums on our ice inflight entertainment.

Usher in prosperity together

The Lunar New Year is also known as the Spring Festival in China. It’s the country’s most important holiday and the cause of its busiest travel period. In fact, the Chinese have a term just for this rush to be home and spend the 15-day holiday with family: chunyun or spring migration.
