I'm putting this out for discussion - I have never seen this before. My friend is travelling with her nut allergic daughter for March Break.

Passengers with Nut Allergy
Singapore Airlines will use reasonable efforts to accommodate passengers’ requests for meals and snacks to be free from nuts. A nut-free special meal refers to a meal, which does not contain peanuts and tree nuts, and their derivatives. Tree nuts include almonds, brazil nuts, cashew nuts, hazel nuts, pistachios, walnuts, pecans and macadamias.

However, please understand that we do not offer nut-free flights, as it is not unusual for passengers on our flight(s) to be served meals and snacks containing nut or nut derivatives and we have no control over passengers bringing their own products containing nut or nut derivatives on board our flights.

We will also not be able to guarantee against accidental cross-contamination that may occur within flight kitchens in our network and the possibility of residues of nut or other nut oils being passed on to the upholstery and other surfaces, or circulated via the air conditioning systems.

Should you require a nut-free meal, please contact your travel agent or local Singapore Airlines office to make arrangements for your nut-free meal at least 48 hours before flight departure. Kindly note that we are unable to cater nut-free meals for flights from Paris Charles De Gaulle Airport and you may need to arrange an alternative route through your travel agent or local Singapore Airlines office.

Once again, we request that you take all necessary precautions bearing in mind the risk of exposure. If you have any concerns about your fitness to travel, we recommend that you discuss your travel plans with your doctor, bringing along this information.
