Emi­rates re­turns with sig­na­ture If­tar ser­vice for Ra­madan

Travel Daily ME - - News -

The Emi­rates If­tar ser­vice has been a main­stay for over 20 years and il­lus­trates the air­line’s com­mit­ment to putting cus­tomer com­fort and con­ve­nience at the heart of its ser­vice of­fer­ing.

The air­line’s sig­na­ture If­tar ser­vice for cus­tomers dur­ing Ra­madan is ex­pected to com­mence on May 27 to co­in­cide with the start of the holy month. These 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 the month of 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. When the sun sets, pas­sen­gers will be in­formed of the If­tar time by the cap­tain. This tool was de­vel­oped to sup­ple­ment the air­line’s an­nu­ally pro­duced book­let on the tim­ings for Ra­madan, avail­able on ev­ery flight.

Trays of dates, sym­bolic of Ra­madan, and wa­ter will also be pro­vided at board­ing gates al­low­ing cus­tomers to break their fast prior to board­ing, or while board­ing at Emi­rates’ hub in Dubai In­ter­na­tional Air­port Ter­mi­nal 3 and other Emi­rates des­ti­na­tions. Dur­ing the holy month, cold meals will be served in lieu of a hot one on all flights to Jed­dah and Med­ina, in­clud­ing Um­rah day flights.
