Welcome to the No Nut Traveler.

This website is dedicated to all the people who have food allergies and wish to fly on commercial airplanes. I created this site because my family was put in a stressful situation with United Airlines, and I don’t want others to go through that.

Currently, there are no guidelines or procedures for airlines to follow concerning food allergies. This is despite the fact that there exists a multitude of documented instances of allergic reactions on planes to both peanuts and tree nuts. There are no guidelines that an airline has to follow to protect allergic passengers.

This fact alone makes air travel even more perilous and anxiety ridden for families who have food allergies. We need to create awareness and create a movement to push airlines and our government to create procedures that protect passengers. And, by the way, these procedures can keep passengers safe without being onerous on the airlines.

About The No Nut Traveler

As the mother of a child with a peanut allergy, I know that airline travel can be as dangerous as navigating a live land mine. I created this website to help others like myself to minimize and prevent the risk of exposures and reactions when flying.

This is a home to share your stories and experiences with different airlines, so others may learn from you. Here you will also find resources that I have found useful in my quest to protect my son.

It is my hope that this site will become a trusted destination for you when you need quick and easy access information regarding airline travel and food allergies. Make an informed decision before you purchase that plane ticket, forewarned is forearmed.
