Enjoy a new tradition or a little taste of home on your way to East Asia. In a recent annoucement by Emirates, from 9th to 13th September on selected routes to the region, the airline company is going to serve mooncakes in every class to celebrate the traditional Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival.
This is the first time Emirates has prepared complimentary festive foods for Mid-autumn Festival for passengers on a designated route from Dubai to Asia. The special catering service will be available on Emirates flights departing from Dubai to Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Hong Kong and Taipei. First class and business class passengers will get a Red Bean Mooncake, while economy class passengers will be served a Red Date Mooncake.
Emirates now operates two daily non-stop flights from Beijing and Shanghai to Dubai, three daily non-stop flights from Hong Kong, and one daily non-stop flight to Guangzhou and Taipei. The UAE flag carrier is using either an A380 or a Boeing 777 aircraft on these routes.
