Turky Al Hammadi, the Head of Product & Hospitality at Etihad Airways had this to say on the incredible offering:

“Ramadan holds a special place in our hearts, it’s a time to reflect and to spread kindness.”

“For our Iftar menu this year, our culinary team has carefully crafted special Ramadan dishes that aim to evoke heartwarming traditions, blending traditional Emirati flavours with a modern twist.”

“Our commitment to premium and sustainable ingredients is reflected in our choice of locally sourced suppliers, ensuring our guests enjoy high-quality, tasty dishes that also support the local economy and have a lesser impact on the environment.”

“[The airline’s] Iftar menu contains dishes like the lamb bukhari with smoked cardamom yoghurt, pulled chicken machbous pinza with chaami cheese and pickled onion, and warm umm ali dessert and olive oil and date cake.”

“Our menus are designed to ensure that our guests savour the richness of traditional Ramadan meals while also maintaining nutritional balance.”

“Furthermore, we offer Etihad Guest members the opportunity to donate their miles, allowing them to spread kindness and support communities around the world.”

“We have seen the generosity of our guests with over 250 million miles donated to a range of causes through the Etihad Guest programme to date.”
