Whether you’re reuniting with loved ones 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, Emirates employees teamed up with artists with learning disabilities to create a special design for the Ramadan meal boxes we’re offering on board. The creative collaboration supports opportunities for the artists to showcase their talent to the world.
If you’re fasting for Ramadan, and iftar or suhoor falls during your flight, we’ll give you one of our special Ramadan meal boxes. It’s packed with a nutritious meal and a drink to break your fast or to prepare for the day ahead. And in our Dubai lounges, we’ll be serving Arabic coffee, dates, sweets and lentil soup.
Watch the story of how our Ramadan meal box design came together. Emirates employees worked with UAE artists who have learning disabilities (referred to as people of determination in the UAE) to discuss how they wanted to express the meaning of Ramadan in the box design. We also used the artwork as an animation on our emirates.com homepage.
Watch our artists in action in this timelapse. Through team work, creative collaboration and sharing ideas, every artist’s contribution builds into a bigger picture that showcases everyone’s stories.
