The airline encouraged passengers traveling with Emirates Airlines during the Eid al-Adha weekend, to arrive at least three hours early at the airport, especially those who will take one of the festive flights. It is recommended that travelers arrive early to be prepared for the high volume of passenger traffic during the busy weekend. This will also ensure that passengers have ample time to take advantage of premium check-in features, including self-check-in kiosks, remote check-in options and smart gates.
Eid al-Adha translated into English means “Feast of the Sacrifice”. Emirates has a long history of recognizing and celebrating many multicultural holidays. While the airline recognizes Islamic holidays, it regularly celebrates other holidays to count as many passengers as possible. It regularly celebrates birthdays, Easter, Diwali and Orthodoxy.
With a major Islamic holiday approaching, Emirates Airlines has decided to celebrate its origins and offer passengers great traditional dining options on Eid al-Adha. The offer includes all cabins and will be served on more than 60 itineraries. In addition, thousands of additional streaming options will be available for any Emirates passenger during the weekend.
