Emirates will be offering travelers festive treats onboard all flights to India from November 2 to 6 in celebration of Diwali.

Passengers traveling to or from Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Cochin, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Thiruvananthapuram, Kolkata, and Mumbai can enjoy a selection of traditional sweets, packaged in exclusively designed, colorful boxes,” said the airline in a press release on November 2.

Economy Class passengers will be served motichoor laddu with all hot tray meals. The traditional dessert is made up of small flour balls deep fried in ghee and simmered in a cardamom and saffron infused sugar syrup, decorated with a silver leaf as a final touch.

Travelers in First Class and Business Class will also be served motichoor laddu, and mixed nut tribooj — a traditional rich sweet known for being covered in edible silver foil. The treat is made with milk and spices, with nuts like cashews and pistachios to enhance its flavor.

The airline offers regionally inspired meals and regularly adds seasonal menus to mark worldwide festivities including Christmas, Lunar New Year, Oktoberfest, and Eid, on all its flights.
