Carry On is a meal delivery service that makes clean meals accessible, easy and affordable. Our team consists of passionate individuals and skilled chefs who prepare fully cooked meals that can be enjoyed hot or cold - each meal is served ready to eat.
We created Carry On simply because we believe that eating fresh, nutritious dishes every day should not only be available on the ground but also in the air when traveling. The same commitment towards a healthier, cleaner lifestyle that we take daily should be available and accessible when changing our environment.
When flying, the high altitude changes not only our palette but also our nutritional needs. We understand human bodies go through these changes, so we’ve ensured that the taste and nutritional values sit right.
No artificial ingredients or preservatives are added in your meal, so rest assured they are always freshly prepared, clean and ready to fuel you for your journey.
We prepare our meals fresh in our kitchen inside Dubai International Airport. We have ample space to cook and create. we are close by, so each delivery is on time, every time!
CarryOn works in a simple three-step process:
Let us know your flight number and details. We can take orders up to 4 hours before your departure time, so we need to make sure we can deliver on time!
The meals will be presented in thermal insulated bags to ensure freshness and the food will be kept cold until you pick it up. Most of the meals can be enjoyed hot or cold and can be reheated in the airplane, with the help of cabin crew.
There are a few ways to get in touch with us. Our Carry On team is ready to answer your question 24/7. You can call +971 (0) 5029 87 966 or emailhello@carryonDXB.com

CarryOn is super straight forward and easy to use. Quick tips before ordering your meal:
After placing the order, you’ll be charged in our system. A notification will be sent to you, as e-mail and SMS, to confirm your dishes. We will keep you posted on the status of your order and pick up location and time through regular updates, but you can also check the details of your meal by logging in to your dashboard on CarryOn.
Your meal will be freshly-prepared and packed in our Thermo insulated bag and kept cold until you pick it up from the designated spot.

At the moment, CarryOn meals are available through our website, but we are working hard on having them featured at our outlets inside Terminal 3, Dubai Airport.
Whilst our menu features gluten-free options, they are not Gluten-Free Certified as they are prepared in a space that is not free of gluten.
All CarryOn meals are fresh, never frozen, and don’t contain preservatives or additives. We recommend enjoying them within 8 hours as well as keeping them in the thermal insulated bag up until the moment of consumption.
We’re taking our commitment to fight against single-use plastic seriously and are always on the lookout for environmentally friendly options.
All meal trays are made from sustainably sourced paper pulp and are fully recyclable. They are lined with a thick gauge polyester film to provide a safe barrier between the food and tray.
Why is paper pulp so important? This makes our dishes oven/microwave friendly.That’s not all, they are not heated conductive and don’t change their shape and structure, so you can remove the seal with your bare hands.
Each meal is delivered with 100% compostable disposable cutlery which is fully recyclable.
From manufacturing through to delivery and even disposal, our packaging is one of the best environmental choices both of us can make.
The secure film lid keeps the nutrition fresh and helps the meal retain its moisture for improved taste and texture. The advanced film formulation we use has invisible micro-perforations to release any excess steam during cooking. That’s what you may call, ‘homemade with love’.
The secure film also provides a safe, leak-proof meal and is highly user-friendly in transit. Despite the secure seal, the film lid can then be easily removed prior to consumption.
If you experience any issues with your CarryOn meal, simply contact us athello@carryonDXB.comor by phone at +97150 29 87 966.
If you are still at the airport, simply visit the pick-up location and tell us more so we can help you out in a timely manner.
