Passengers on Emirates Airline flights to Dubai will be able to respect the religious traditions of Ramadan whilst on board, the carrier has announced.
During the Muslim holy month, Emirates has unveiled enhancements to its in-flight service to ensure passengers who observe the traditions will be able to fast during their journey.
According to the airline, the captain will announce when the sun has set and passengers will be provided with a purposely-prepared meal box which will include delicacies common to traditional Arabic cuisine.
“For Muslims, Ramadan is an important part of the Islamic calendar and Emirates is pleased to be able to support our passengers as they undertake their religious duty,” explained Ahmed Khoory, Emirates’ senior vice-president for commercial operations in the Gulf, Middle East and Iran.
However, for those who do not follow the religion, the carrier assures passengers they will be served “world-class” food during their flight to Dubai.
Travellers taking a holiday in Dubai after Ramadan in October may wish to head to the Festival Marina in the resort for the Dubai Boating Festival.
Events will include model boat races, dinghy racing and dragon boats.
