British Airways Apply New Nut Allergy Policy

British Airways, who already have a nut-free snack policy on all flights, have now expanded their protection of passengers with severe nut allergies by adding a pre-flight announcement outlining the policy and requesting those passengers who may be seated nearby others with nut allergies to refrain from eating peanuts or nut-based snacks or food items.

This additional level of protection makes British Airways the first major international airliner to implement such safeguards. Advocates for those living with life-threatening nut allergies heralded the British Airways PA announcements as an important step for the food allergy community.
