Throughout the Holy month of Ramadan, Qatar Airways is offering its passengers who are fasting a specially designed Iftar box to break their fast. The box, which has become a tradition on Qatar Airways flights during Ramadan, consists of local healthy delights. The Iftar boxes are offered exclusively on board Qatar Airways operated flights between Doha and the Gulf, the Middle East and the Levant countries during Iftar, in both Premium and Economy Class, and serves as an alternative to the regularly offered meals.

The Iftar box contains hummus, crudites, a vegetarian sandwich as well as a pack of the airline’s signature mixed fruit and nuts, in addition to water, laban, dates and Arabic sweets to enjoy at the moment of breaking their fast. Premium Class includes a chicken shawarma and vegetable saaj bread wraps and a banana while Economy Class Iftar boxes include a vegetarian sandwich wrap with red pepper and falafel. Qatar Airways Senior Vice President Customer Experience, Rossen Dimitrov, said: “We continue to design excellent products that exceed Qatar Airways’ passengers’ expectations.
