Emirates airline is celebrating 'Veganuary' with a number of plant-based options on its menus.

Throughout January, passengers will be able to choose from dishes such as tofu jalfrezi, shitake ravioli, Ancho three bean chilli, shitake fried rice or Misir Wat, as a fourth main course option in first and business class.

The plant-based option will be on the menus of flights from Dubai to the USA, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Addis Ababa. The vegan offering will also be available in economy on flights to Addis Ababa over the course of this month.

On all other routes and across all classes, customers can continue to request vegan meals, along with other special meals, 24 hours before departure.

Last year, Emirates, which has over 170 vegan recipes in its kitchen, served 345,000 special plant-based meals to customers on board.

For customers who are less inclined towards a plant-based diet, Emirates' regular menus are also available. The airline serves over 110 million meals on board each year.
