10 Tips For Travelling With Food Allergies

2. If Possible, Select an Allergy-Aware Airline

If travelling by air, select an airline with allergy-friendly policies that can help make travelling with food allergies safer and less stressful. Ideally an airline will allow you to board early to wipe down your seating area, make an announcement to all passengers alerting them that someone with a life threatening food allergy is on board, and will alter their snack selection or create a buffer zone if you have an airborne nut or animal fur allergy. Make sure to notify the airline of your allergy at least 2 weeks before you travel. Call back again to make sure it is noted in your file at least 48 hours before you travel.
