Fasting While Flying? Emirates Has Got You Covered!
Emirates is known for its hospitality

Emirates Airlines really knows how to take care of its passengers!

Not only will the airline be offering special meals for fasting passengers, it will also be doing so at the exact Imsak (the time to begin the fast) and Iftar times! 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 Emirates' annually produced booklet on the timings for Ramadan, available on every flight, reports Khaleej Times

Emirates' Iftar boxes will feature an Arabesque design inspired by the region, and will provide fasting passengers a convenient way to break their fast with a nutritious and balanced meal. The Iftar box includes options such as za'atar chicken with hummus, spinach fatayer, halloumi cheese and cucumber sandwiches, along with traditional sweets such as maamoul and dates, as well as yoghurt. Menus will be refreshed mid-Ramadan.
