Emirates offers Lunar New Year fare

Emirates´ travellers this February will get a specially curated selection of festive Lunar New Year goodies, the company said.

Available for a limited time only, passengers traveling from Dubai to Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Zhengzhou, Yinchuan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Taipei and Hanoi can indulge in Emirates´ exclusive Lunar New Year offerings onboard and in airport lounges in Dubai and select destinations.

Lunar New Year is celebrated in countries and territories including China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia and Vietnam. In China, the celebration is also known as the Spring Festival because it starts from the beginning of Spring within the traditional solar calendar.

Lunar New Year is a celebration of family, fun and most notably, feasting. Traditionally, red packets containing money are handed out to family, friends and relatives as a way of sending good wishes and blessings during this auspicious holiday period, and mandarin oranges are exchanged to symbolise good luck.

The festive spread is the latest menu to be introduced onboard, exclusively available on select routes from Dubai to Asia. The airline has previously developed seasonal menus for occasions such as Christmas, Diwali and Oktoberfest.
