Passengers flying on board Qatar Airways who are fasting during the Holy Month of Ramadan will be offered a nutritious Iftar meal box filled with healthy options to break their fast.

Specially designed ‘Ramadan Kareem’ Iftar boxes will be offered in-flight on selected routes across the Middle East, Pakistan, Bangladesh, as well as selected stations in India and Africa.

Customers in all travel classes can enjoy a selection consisting of dates, laban, sandwich wraps, Arabic sweets, mixed nuts and bottled mineral water, among others. The food offering is well-balanced and has been carefully selected by the airline’s menu development team to ensure that both traditional and nutritious items are included.

Qatar Airways Senior Vice President for Marketing and Corporate Communications, Salam Al Shawa, said that the special service will enable fasting passengers to break their fast by enjoying a box filled with traditional and nutritious items.

We invite our passengers to embrace this significant time by enjoying our special Iftar boxes, designed especially with the fasting passenger in mind. On behalf of Qatar Airways, we extend to all warmest wishes for a Ramadan Kareem.’

Iftar boxes are offered on selected flights to or from Basra, Kuwait, Muscat, Shiraz, Sohar, Amman, Khartoum, Mashad, Najaf, Sulaimaniyah, Baghdad, Salalah, Erbil, Dhaka, and Hyderabad, Algiers, and Tunis (outbound only). Additional destinations may apply depending on schedule changes.

Travelling between time zones can be challenging for the fasting traveller, thus Qatar Airways cabin crew will make an announcement and serve Iftar boxes at the appropriate time during the flight, alleviating the need for passengers to calculate the time.
