Peanut allergy on Ryanair flight?

Post by krisnils on Sun 15 May 2011 - 22:19

Hi,

I read this post and wonders if this is Ryanair policy or if something changed. We are flying Gothenburg to Bergamo in july this summer and one of the persons has a peanut allergy.

http://ryanair.site-forums.com/t1543-allergic-to-nuts-what-is-ryanair-s-policy#6662

In this case you are suppose to advise the cabin crew at the airport. they will make an announcement on the flight that there is an allergic person and ask the passengers not to consume any nuts that they brought on board and they will not sell any nut products on that flight. however as you know some products may contain traces of nuts even if it's not specified and also the passengers can disregard the announcement and still consume them. in this case you should bring an epi pen just in case. usualy in this situation you are suppose to contact the call center and advise them of this, that way you will not have any problems bringing the epi pen on board and also the agents in the call center will advise the airport about the nut allergy.

Also, is there any peanuts on the Ryanair menu nowadays and does she need some kind of doctors certificate to bring the epipen aboard?

Thankful for answers.

As soon as you get onboard tell the cabin crew about the nut allergy and they will make an announcement and nothing containing nuts will be sold on that flight.

Yes there are peanuts sold onboard and a few items containing nuts, so best to let them know. Also there is no need to phone the call centre about the allergy.

Not too sure about coming through security with an epi-pen.

Hope this helps.

Hi, there is not much info on the home site regarding this thread, and it seems this is the case with other airlines in general.

http://www.ryanair.com/en/questions/are-peanuts-nuts-used-in-the-meals-snacks-on-board-ryanair-flights-i-have-a-nut-allergy-and-want-to-know-if-ryanair-have-a-policy-on-using-nuts-within-their-meals << links bigger than the info provided Shocked

It can only be to your advantage if you contact your Doctor and Ryanair customer services before you fly explaining the situation and also mentioning the carrying of a epi-pen, just incase you need a medical note to support this (i dont think you will).. but if only for peace of mind.
At the airport I Personally would make sure the crew knew about the allergy from checking ( If you are checking in) then at the gate and again once on board making sure a announcement is made -(as we know sometimes there can be communication break downs). But still it seems within the aviation industry they do not like to get too involved with this subject.
