DUBAI // Almost 6,000 Iftar meals will be distributed among labourers each day during Ramadan, the Dubai Municipality has said. The meals will be given to thousands of workers employed by the municipality who live in labour accommodations in the Al Qusais, Al Aweer and Al Quoz areas. The food will be supplied by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, and the Red Crescent Society. Meanwhile Emirates Airlines have announced their plans for the holy month with small snack boxes provided for flights departing close to Iftar and large Iftar meal boxes to be served to fasting passengers in-flight. Passengers who are in-flight when the sun sets will be informed of the Iftar time by the captain. Iftar will be determined based on where the aircraft is located at the time the sun goes down.
