Traveling with Food Allergies
Flying with Food Allergies
Allergy policies on airlines vary and can change.
Check with the airline about special accommodations when making your reservation, and again with the actual flight crew when you arrive for your flight.
Make sure to have a sufficient supply of medications (e.g., at least two epinephrine doses) in a carry-on bag.
Bringing your own food is always the safest alternative.
