Eid al-Fitr

Eid mubarak

Meaning ‘festival of breaking the fast’, Eid Al‑Fitr marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan. Wish everyone ‘Eid mubarak’ or a ‘blessed celebration’ and join in on the fun.

Although each region has a unique Eid tradition, three things are common everywhere it is celebrated: spending the holiday with family, enjoying delicious meals together and exchanging gifts and sweets.

Celebrate with us and enjoy seasonal delicacies and special treats on selected flights and lounges.

Join the festivities at our lounges

You're in for a treat this Eid al-Fitr.

You’ll also have a selection of sweets and pastries from um ali served with pistachio ice cream to Emirati luqaimat.

In Singapore, you can savour seasonal favourites like the Gulf style lamb biryani and mixed vegetable salona. While you can look forward to traditional biscuits and a delicious smoked herring in Cairo.
