Passengers with nut allergy

Passengers with nut allergy

A nut-free special meal does not contain peanuts and tree nuts (including almonds, Brazil nuts, cashew nuts, hazelnuts, pistachios, walnuts, pecans and macadamias), and their derivatives.


Non-strict nut-free meals (NFMLA) require advance preparation time. We’ll make every reasonable effort to accommodate your request for a NFMLA. To ensure that we have sufficient time to cater this meal for you, please request for it at least 48 hours prior to your flight.


Since April 2018, Singapore Airlines has stopped serving peanuts as snacks to customers in Economy Class, while other types of nuts continue to be served in Suites, First Class, Business Class and Premium Economy Class. In Economy Class, snack packs containing peas and crackers are given instead of peanuts. However, we’re unable to provide a nut-free cabin or guarantee an allergy-free environment on board. It’s not unusual for other passengers on our flights to be served meals and snacks containing nuts or their derivatives, such as satay (grilled chicken, beef and mutton slices served with spicy peanut sauce). We also have no control over passengers consuming their own snacks or meals on board, which may contain nuts or their derivatives. 


We request that you take every necessary precaution, bearing in mind the risk of exposure. If you have any concerns about your fitness to travel, we encourage you to share this information and discuss your travel plans with your doctor.


If you choose to request a NFMLA on board our flight, please contact your travel agent or local Singapore Airlines office at least 48 hours before departure.
