Customers traveling on Emirates’ India flights during Diwali are in for a special treat as the airline celebrates the festival of lights with traditional holiday delicacies. From Nov. 4 to 10, customers traveling in all classes between Dubai and India will enjoy classic Indian sweets and delicacies associated with the festival of lights. Emirates will also extend the celebrations to select lounges across its global network by offering its customers special dishes.

During the festival week, Emirates customers in Economy Class can enjoy gram flour-based Motichoor Laddu served with all meals.  In First Class and Business class, passengers can look forward to fig-based Anjeer Chakkar and Motichoor Laddu in addition to the dessert menu.

On Nov. 7, Emirates’ premium lounges in Dubai, Delhi, Cape Town, Johannesburg and Kuala Lumpur were to join in the celebrations and serve sweets such as barfis, laddoos, jalebis; mains such as biryani rice and chapatti; snacks like dal kachori, samosa; and desserts such as angoori rabdi, Rasmalai and kheer.

The celebrations are part of Emirates’ ongoing investment to offer customers seasonal menus and a chance to sample new flavors from different destinations when traveling. In all classes, Emirates serves multi-course meals prepared by award-winning chefs. The airline’s regionally inspired cuisine is often complemented by seasonal offerings, such as special menus for Christmas, Lunar New Year, Oktoberfest, and Eid.
