Special meals

Brussels Airlines recognises that it serves nut products on board, and that there may be trace elements of unspecified nut ingredients in meals and snacks. Additionally, other passengers may bring nuts on board. Hence, there is no guarantee that a Brussels Airlines-flight is completely free of traces of this allergen. Passengers with a nut allergy should be well prepared and take all the precautions required to minimise the risk of an allergic reaction.
