This Holi, even if you’re flying thousands of feet above ground, Emirates is bringing the vibrant festival spirit right to your seat. From March 24th to 25th, passengers traveling on select flights to India can indulge in special treats and drinks that celebrate the Festival of Colors.


A Taste of Holi on Every Flight

Passengers flying between Dubai and Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kolkata, and Mumbai will be treated to a delightful surprise – the quintessential Holi sweet, Kesar Gujiya. These deep-fried dumplings, filled with a rich mixture of solidified milk and dried fruits, will be served alongside regular meals throughout the day.

Packaged in a specially designed box reflecting the colorful spirit of Holi, these Gujiyas are a delicious way to experience a taste of the festival tradition.

First and Business Class: An Upgraded Holi Experience

For First and Business Class passengers, the celebration goes a step further. Upon boarding, they’ll be greeted with a refreshing glass of Thandai, a festive drink traditionally associated with Holi. Made with milk, nuts, and fragrant saffron, topped with rose petals, Thandai is a delightful way to cool down and embrace the celebratory mood.

Entertainment Options to Match the Festivities

Emirates understands that a celebration isn’t complete without entertainment. To keep the Holi spirit alive, their award-winning ice inflight entertainment system boasts a vast library of over 260 Indian movies, including the latest releases, classic Bollywood favorites, and regional Indian cinema.

Passengers can create their own celebration-themed playlists or enjoy specially curated music selections like tunes from Yash Raj Films and a music video compilation titled “Holi Hai!”

A Commitment to Cultural Celebrations

Emirates’ festival initiative highlights their dedication to celebrating cultural festivities for their passengers. This follows their recent Ramadan offering, where passengers flying during the holy month received special Iftar meal boxes onboard and at departure gates. In their Dubai lounges, travelers can indulge in traditional Arabic sweets, dates, and coffee alongside a selection of hot and cold Arabic mezze throughout Ramadan.

By incorporating these cultural elements into the travel experience, Emirates fosters a sense of inclusivity and celebrates the diversity of its passengers. So, this Holi, buckle up, grab your Thandai, and get ready to experience a touch of India’s vibrant festival in the skies with Emirates.
