INDIA In celebration of Diwali, Emirates will be offering customers festive treats on-board all flights to India from 2nd to 6th November. Customers travelling to/from Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Cochin, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Thiruvananthapuram, Kolkata, and Mumbai will enjoy a selection of delicious, traditional sweets, packaged in exclusively designed, colourful boxes.

Economy Class customers travelling with Emirates will be served a mouth-watering Motichoor Laddu with all hot tray meals. The traditional dessert is made up of small flour balls deep fried in ghee and simmered in a cardamom and saffron infused sugar syrup, decorated with a silver leaf as a final touch.

Premium customers travelling in First Class and Business Class will also be served Motichoor Laddu, and Mixed Nut Tribooj – a traditional, rich sweet known for its distinctive covering of edible silver foil. The Mixed Nut Tribooj is made with milk and spices, with delicate-flavoured nuts like cashews and pistachios to enhance its flavour.

As a global airline, Emirates celebrates cultural diversity by creating memorable experiences for its customers in the air and on-ground. On all flights across its network, the airline offers regionally inspired meals, and regularly adds seasonal menus to mark worldwide festivities including Christmas, Lunar New Year, Oktoberfest and Eid. Passengers on-board will feel at home with the warm hospitality of Emirates’ multicultural cabin crew, including Indian nationals. Customers will also enjoy ultimate entertainment on ice – the award-winning inflight entertainment system – with more than 4,500 channels including popular Bollywood movies.

Emirates currently serves nine points in India, including Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Cochin, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Thiruvananthapuram, Kolkata, and Mumbai.

Emirates has led the industry with its innovative products and services, including a comprehensive set of health and safety measures at every step of the journey, contactless technology at Dubai Airport, generous and flexible booking policies, and an industry-first multi-risk insurance cover.
