Emirates to serve Iftar for customers in Ramadan
Emirates’ signature Iftar service for customers during Ramadan is expected to commence on May 27 to coincide with the start of the holy month, says a press release.

Ramadan 2017 will begin in the evening of May 26 (Friday) subject to sighting of the new crescent moon in Bangladesh.

The release, issued on Wednesday, said the special meals will be available to passengers across all cabin classes on select Emirates flights, including flights to and from the Gulf region as well as on flights catering to Umrah groups travelling to Jeddah and Medina during Ramadan.

Emirates’ attractive Iftar boxes feature an Arabesque design inspired by the region, and will provide those observing Ramadan a convenient way to break their fast with a nutritious and balanced meal. While catering to a global palate, the thoughtfully designed Iftar menus will also feature a Middle Eastern flavour.

The Iftar box includes options such as za’atar chicken with hummus, spinach fatayer, halloumi cheese and cucumber sandwiches, and traditional sweets such as maamoul and dates, as well as yoghurt. Menus will be refreshed mid-Ramadan.

Emirates utilises a unique tool to calculate the correct timings for Imsak (the time to commence fasting) and Iftar while in-flight. It calculates the exact Ramadan timings using the aircraft’s longitude, latitude and altitude; ensuring the greatest level of accuracy possible while on board, the press release added.
