As of 1 July, British regional airline Flybe will no longer carry peanuts or nut-based products on board its own-operated flights.
According to chief commercial officer Roy Kinnear: “Passenger safety is our number one priority, and this extends across all aspects of our own operation.
“That is why we take the issue of nut allergies extremely seriously and, as an additional measure to those already being taken, have now removed all peanuts and nut-based products from our on board Café Flybe menu.”
The airline added: “Flybe hopes that, together with its existing precautionary announcements, the additional measure it has taken by being one of the first to remove nut-based snack products from all its own-operated flights will lessen the stress experienced by those worrying about a potential nut-related anaphylaxis reaction when needing to travel by public transport.”
