Kathmandu, June 24

Qatar Airways has observed holy month of Ramadan by hosting an Iftar dinner with a secular congregation here.

The dinner saw distinguished guests from Nepal government, Nepal Hajj committee, dignitaries from different religions and delegates from different embassies, as per a media release issued today. The Iftar dinner had special Arabic cuisine selection. This event was arranged in line with the new secular Nepal and celebrated with different religious dignitaries.

The year’s holy month of Ramadan started in the evening of June 5 and will continue for 30 days until the evening of July 5. Ramadan is the ninth month of the lunar calendar, and the month in which Muslims believe the Holy Quran was revealed. The month is spent by Muslims fasting during the daylight hours from dawn to sunset.

Qatar Airways will continue its Ramadan tradition of offering fasting travellers a delicious and healthy Iftar meal box featuring nutritious snacks, inspired by Middle Eastern cuisine, to break their fast. Available on selected flights throughout holy month of Ramadan, the Qatar Airways Iftar boxes have been designed to engage all passengers. Each box features inspiring messages about the meaning of Ramadan, providing all passengers with an interesting insight into this special time of celebration for Muslims.

Qatar Airways flies three flights a day to Kathmandu from its hub in Doha and connects the city to more than 150 destinations around the globe. With an average connection time of just 90 minutes via Hamad International Airport, passengers travelling from Nepal can expect a smooth and seamless journey to their final destination via Doha, the release adds.
