Airlines and Transportation

We know how difficult it is to travel while managing food allergies. Airlines in the United States lack a consistent policy with respect to food allergies. Some airlines will grant you pre-boarding permission and make an announcement regarding your family member’s food allergies, while the next airline won’t provide a thing. Some airlines continue the practice of passing out peanuts to passengers while others have voluntarily moved to different snacks, yet those are also not necessarily food-allergy friendly.

This issue is a major focus at FAACT. We will work with the airlines and U.S. legislators to secure a consistent policy with every airline so that your family can safely travel.
