Special meals on board

On our intercontinental KLM flights we offer a variety of special meals tailored to your medical, religious or other special needs.

Peanut and nut allergies

Our meals do not contain any whole or ground peanuts or peanut paste, but we cannot guarantee that KLM flights are 100% free of peanut contamination. On intercontinental flights, we serve a mixed nut snack in Business Class and almonds in Economy Class. Unfortunately, we are unable to serve you an alternative. It is also possible that other passengers have taken peanuts or other nuts on board with them.

If you have a serious peanut or other food allergy, do not forget to take your allergy medicine with you. You can also take your own meal with you. We recommend asking your doctor or KLM Cares about whether you should be travelling.
