Welcome to the No Nut Traveler, Inc.
No Nut Traveler, Inc. was created to use grass roots organizing, advocacy and education to improve the safety and quality of life of individuals with food allergies both in the air and on the ground.
I originally created this site because my family was put in a stressful situation with United Airlines, and I didn’t want others to be humiliated the way our family was.
Thanks to testimonials shared on nonuttraveler.com and the work of disability rights attorney Mary Vargas, food allergies are now a recognized disability under the Air Carrier Access Act (ACAA). All United States airlines must allow the food allergic passenger to pre-board and clean the seating area for past contamination and mitigate the risk of an in-flight allergic reaction.
There are no other guidelines that an airline must follow to protect fliers with food allergies. The FAA does not even mandate easy to use auto-injectors as a requirement in Emergency Medical Kits on planes. Join us as we speak up, educate others and support change!
