Etihad Airways prepares a specially curated in-flight menu through the holy month of Ramadan. The menu comes thanks to the airline’s collaboration with Emirati Chef Khaled Alsaadi, in which Alsaadi recreates popular Ramadan dishes blending Emirati recipes with contemporary techniques and local ingredients.
“It was an absolute pleasure to work again with Etihad’s culinary design team, the unique collaboration allowed me to present modern Emirati dishes to international guests travelling on board the UAE’s national carrier,” said Chef Khaled Alsaadi. “Travelers during Ramadan, long for a nourishing iftar meal, and I wanted to bring the essence of Emirati cuisine to Etihad’s travelers to taste local flavors and leave a lasting impression on their taste buds.”
Throughout Ramadan, Etihad’s regular hot meal service will be complemented by the iftar meals onboard. These special meals include saffron curry-crusted seabream; lamb shank with black lime jus, lentil soup, Chaami and beetroot salad; Machboos chicken ciabatta sandwich; Aseeda cheesecake; and saffron pot de crème with batheeta crumble.
Guests can also access the selection of bespoke recipes by scanning QR codes at the bottom of the onboard menu, allowing guests to recreate these delicious meals at home. The Ramadan menu will be available to guests across all cabins on selected flights coinciding with iftar times, including flights to and from the Gulf countries and flights catering to Umrah groups traveling to Jeddah.
