On Tuesday (April 6, 2021), Emirates announced a special collaboration with Dubai-based artists for guests traveling throughout the holy month of Ramadan. For over 20 years, Emirates’ signature Ramadan service has been a mainstay of the carrier’s bespoke service, providing a comfortable journey throughout the holy month.

The iftar boxes are served in addition to Emirates’ award-winning meal service and the menus will be refreshed weekly.
