Air travel can be a major source of anxiety for individuals with nut allergies. The enclosed space, presence of snacks, and lack of control over the environment pose significant risks. We, at No Nuts!, understand these concerns deeply. Here is a helpful guide with tips for managing air travel safely with a nut allergy.

Nearly 1 in 13 children in the United States has a food allergy, with nut allergies being one of the most common. Preparing for air travel is crucial - it can be the difference between a smooth journey and a potential emergency.

II. Before Your Flight

A. Researching Airlines

Choose airlines with nut allergy-friendly policies. While regulations can vary, some airlines have removed nuts from their snacks altogether. You can usually find this information on airline websites or by consulting articles like our "Life with a Peanut Allergy" Learn More.

B. Booking Your Flight

When reserving your seat, notify the airline of your allergy. Some are willing to accommodate with special seating arrangements or meals.

C. Packing Your Snacks

Don't rely on airline food. Pack secure, nut-free snacks to take on board with you, like our Blueberry & Vanilla bars.

III. Pre-Flight Preparations

A. Doctor's Note and Medication

Carry any allergy medication, especially epinephrine injectors, and a doctor's note for security processes.

B. Pre-Flight Communication

A few days before your flight, confirm any arrangements with the airline to ensure the staff is aware of your allergy.

C. Preparing Snacks and Meals

Besides your allergy-safe snacks, consider additional nut-free options for longer flights, such as our Lemon Creme bars.

Speak to gate agents and flight attendants about your allergy when you arrive. This will give them ample time to assist you.

B. Communication with Staff and Passengers

Clearly and politely inform the crew and passengers near you about your allergy to create a safer environment for your travel.

Use your pre-packed nut-free snacks to maintain control over what you eat and minimize allergy risks.
