Prior to take-off, premium customers can tuck into an assortment of Chinese dishes at the seven Emirates lounges found in Dubai International Airport fom 15-18 February.

From 15-17 February, travellers flying back to Singapore via Dubai can revel in festivity thousands of feet above the ground. Customers travelling in First Class and Business Class will receive a red packet with two chocolate coins, symbolising the auspicious value of “lucky money” during this special occasion.
In addition to the regionally inspired cuisine served on board, passengers will be able to indulge in a selection of Lunar New Year desserts. First Class and Business Class customers can tuck into a mouth-watering lychee and raspberry mousse served with vanilla lychee compote, shaped in the design of a traditional Chinese firecracker. Business Class customers can also enjoy the added treat of coconut and mandarin mousse, served with mandarin compote.

To complete the festive experience, First Class customers can look forward to savouring a white peach mochi as a post-meal accompaniment alongside coffee or tea. Those travelling in Economy Class will also be able to satisfy their sweet tooth with a mandarin cake topped with orange compote.
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.
