All Ramadan tents cancelled in Dubai due to Covid-19 measures

All Ramadan tent permits in Dubai have been cancelled this year as part of the Government’s Covid-19 safety measures.

No tents will be allowed outside mosques, public places or houses to help keep the Covid-19 rates down during Ramadan. The Holy Month is normally a period when tents are set up by charities to serve free food to those fasting during the month.

Ramadan is due to start on April 13 in Dubai this year, depending on the exact date of the moon sighting.

The news was announced by the Department of Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities. But while the main permits have been banned, some special licenses will be granted for charities in special circumstances.

You can now buy extra seats on Emirates for just AED200

Travelling just got that bit much more luxurious for economy passengers as Emirates passengers can buy extra seats for just AED200.

While the dream of relaxing in First or Business is literally just a dream for many, this budget business class option is inspired.

And it means if you are flying you can not only stretch out your legs but also ensure you’re socially distancing as well!

Any extra seats on Emirates will be offered at the airport check-in counter prior to departure. You can’t book ahead, sadly, and you can book more than one seat.

Prices start from AED200 to AED600 per seat and you’ll also have to factor in any extra taxes.
