A staple in-flight aspect is returning to Emirates

Earlier this year, the travel industry was hit hard at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. Countries closed their borders, flights were grounded and air travel ceased to exist as we knew it for a while.

However, over the past few months, Emirates has slowly but surely been recommencing flights to key desintations and is now currently flying to over 90 cities globally.

Throughout the pandemic, a number of key flight aspects have been put on hold, including in-flight meals and complimentary beverages. These restrictions were put in place in order to prevent the further spread of COVID-19 during travel.

However, in another step in returning to normality, Emirates has announced it’s resuming food and beverage services on all of their flights from the beginning of next month.

From November 1, complimentary beverages will now be available on all flights, as well as hot and cold meals.

In a statement issued by Emirates, the airline stated its “onboard dining experience will return to its signature service while observing strict hygiene protocols”.

“Customers in all classes will enjoy multi-course meals and choose from a complimentary selection of beverages including wine and beer, as well as juices and soft drinks,” the statement added. “Cocktails will also be served in premium classes.

“In Economy Class, customers can choose from two wines; in Business Class, customers can choose from six wines including port and champagne, while in First Class, customers will have a selection of 11 wines including a dessert wine, port and Dom Perignon champagne.”

Emirates Airline has ensured it’s taking every precaution necessary in order to protect its staff and employees. This includes covering any COVID-19 medical costs any Emirates passengers may incur during their travels.
