Emirates Adds Festive Cheer with Special Christmas Menu

To celebrate the upcoming season, Emirates has ramped up its product offering onboard and on the ground by introducing a new Christmas menu for the first time across all cabin classes featuring traditional festive meals.

The special menu will be in addition to the wide variety of cuisine available onboard and features favourites such as roast turkey and yule log cakes. These Christmas meals are available for customers travelling from Dubai to Australia, Europe or the USA and will be served throughout December.

Customers travelling in Economy Class can enjoy Rolled Turkey Buffé served with cranberry jus lié, mashed potatoes, chicken sausage and seasonal vegetables. For desserts, customers will be served Festive Chocolate Pudding with spiced ginger custard.

Those travelling in First and Business Class will start with Poached King Prawns with Marie Rose sauce and fennel with lemon and herbs and enjoy a main course of Rolled Turkey Buffé served with chestnut stuffing, cranberry jus lié, pumpkin mash and brussels sprouts with turkey rashers and cream. A variety of desserts is available on the different routes including Chocolate Pudding, Chocolate & Chestnut Torte, and Yule log.

As a special treat, First Class customers can look out for luxury hot chocolate handmade with 100% Valrhona Chocolate and blended to perfection by chocolatier David Franco.

Premium customers can also get into the Christmas spirit before the flight departs at the six Emirates lounges found in Dubai International Airport. Traditional sweets such as Basler Leckerli gingerbread cookies, Christmas cake and Stollen cake are being served as well as roasted turkey in the First Class lounges.

Special Treat for Young Flyers

Emirates has also pulled out all the stops for young flyers. A special children’s festive menu is available for the second year with roast turkey, sweet potato mash, carrots and peas, as well as a candy cane and Emirates’ Little Travellers chocolate buttons as an added treat.

As part of the Emirates Fly With Me Animals, a fifth character will greet young travellers this December. Eve, the reindeer, will be introduced onboard to coincide with the Christmas season. She will join Eric the eagle, Silka the seal, Abbott the hedgehog and Shane the Koala.

All five animals are featured across three product lines: the Travel Buddy, which comes with a plastic toggle allowing the toy to be hung in the car, on a pram or in the cot; the Carry Buddy, a dual purpose toy and blanket; and the Magnetic Sketcher for young ones to express themselves creatively. Airport lounges in Dubai and outstations will also feature the Cuddle Buddy, a soft blanket that acts as a companion for younger children.
