Peanut and nut allergies and other food 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.
Don’t forget your allergy medicine
If you have a serious food allergy, we recommend that you take your allergy medicine with you. You can also take your own meal with you, although we unfortunately cannot heat your meal because of safety rules on board. We recommend asking your doctor or KLM Cares about whether you should be travelling.
