Passengers on-board Emirates needn’t worry about breaking fast during Ramadan. With a tool to calculate the correct time for imsak and iftar using the aircraft’s longitude, latitude and even altitude, passengers will be informed of sunset and iftar by the captain.

On flights departing close to iftar, snack boxes will be provided at Terminal 3 boarding gates, while meal boxes will be served to fasting passengers in economy, with a similar selection in business class and first class. Non-fasting passengers travelling on Umrah, Madinah and Jeddah flights will receive a cold meal instead of the regular hot meal for all flights taking off after sunrise and before sunset.
