Oman Air reintroduces Iftar service and meal boxes

Oman Air has reintroduced its Iftar service and meal boxes on select flights to facilitate guests’ dietary needs during Ramadan. 

The Iftar boxes are available in all cabin classes and are adorned with distinctive Ramadan-themed visuals and a Ramadan Mubarak logo extending best wishes to guests.

This year’s Iftar boxes contain slices of fresh seasonal fruits and fruit bites, an assortment of finger sandwiches, dates and traditional maamoul, vegetables, hummus, mixed nuts, and traditional laban drink, and offer a convenient and healthy way for Muslim guests to break their fast.

Ramadan is an important month of religious observation during which Oman Air states it is committed to showcasing its Middle Eastern hospitality to all guests. Muslim guests will be able to enjoy Ramadan-themed feature programs that will run alongside the airline’s inflight entertainment. 

Full dining options will still be available for all non-Muslim guests during Ramadan. However, with health and safety an ongoing priority, all food and beverages continue to be served in the form of bento-style boxes to reduce contact between guests and crew during meal service.

Eng. Hashim Al-Breiki, Acting Vice-President Guest Experience & Branding, said: “Our Oman Air signature Ramadan service with nutritious Iftar meal boxes and select Ramadan-themed inflight programming is a gesture of consideration at this special time of year. As an airline, we remain committed to catering to the needs of all our guests and I personally extend my best wishes for health and happiness to all those observing Ramadan around the world—Ramadan Mubarak.”
