This festive season, Emirates is bringing a special touch of joy for the whole month of December, with traditional treats and festive offerings available across international lounges and a host of delights served inflight, ensuring the 1 million Emirates customers travelling this December fly better throughout the festive season. 

Festive feasts across Emirates Lounges

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Emirates Lounges in Dubai, where passengers jetting off to greet family and friends for the holiday season can pause to indulge in some festive offerings before boarding.

In the Bangkok lounge, passengers can enjoy Turkey Roulade Roasted, Pumpkin Cream Soup, Christmas Log Cake, and Chocolate Ginger Berry Mousse as an added specialty for the festive season.

Tis the season to be jolly onboard Emirates

For the entire month of December, Emirates will serve festive meals and snacks in all cabins on select routes. Customers in First and Business Class will be offered the Emirates spiced strawberry welcome drink, and First Class customers will also get a miniature Santa Claus creatively crafted from strawberries and white chocolate cream. From 17-26 December, customers in all classes will be offered a festive hot chocolate heaped with melting marshmallows and First Class customers can opt for aromatic mulled wine. From the 24-26 December, Emirates will be offering mini gifts of pistachio and raspberry profiteroles, dark chocolate truffles and gingerbread cookies, across the various cabin classes.

In the A380 onboard lounge, customers departing onwards from Dubai can relax with some fragrantly spiced mulled wine or hot chocolate and munch on some mince pies, stollen, panettone, Christmas pastries, as well as traditional mandarins and chestnuts, biscotti and candy canes. This year, customers visiting the onboard lounge can also grab a Christmas sandwich stuffed with turkey, roast beef, cheddar cheese, cranberry sauce and chilli tomato relish.
