Emirates offers Iftar and increases flights for Umrah during Ramadhan

The meal box, designed by Emirates' chefs, will be served in Economy class, with a similar selection of foods served to fasting passengers in both Business and First Class.

Robin Padgett, Emirates' Vice President Aircraft Catering said: "While we take pride in our cultural diversity, Emirates' foundation is rooted in Islamic culture, and we are committed to ensuring that our Muslim passengers are well looked after during the holy month of Ramadan.

"Ramadan is an important part of the Islamic calendar and Emirates is pleased to be able to support our Muslim passengers as they undertake their religious obligations. Our non-fasting passengers will continue to enjoy the world-class meals Emirates is globally known for."

Non-fasting passengers travelling on Umrah and Jeddah flights will receive a cold meal instead of the regular hot meal for all flights taking off after sunrise and before sunset, in respect to the many Muslim passengers completing Umrah on these flights.
