Special meals

We understand that you may have special dietary requirements and will do our best to meet your needs. We serve a large variety of special meals tailored to suit medical, religious or other specific needs on board our intercontinental flights. On board our European flights (including Armenia, Morocco, Israel, Russia, Egypt, Cape Verde and Tunisia), we serve the same variety of special meals to our Bizz&Class guests only. Our guests travelling between Brussels and Tel Aviv in Flex&Fast have also the option to order a carefully crafted kosher meal.

Do you wish to order a special meal? Simply place your request at least 48 hours before the departure of your flight by contacting our Service Centre.

Guests travelling with children up to 2 years can order a baby meal on all our intercontinental flights (when travelling in Economy or Business class) and on all our European flights (when travelling in Bizz&Class). Guests travelling with children aged 2-11 years will receive a child meal on all our intercontinental flights (when travelling in Economy or Business class) and on all our European flights (when travelling in Flex& Fast and Bizz&Class).

Brussels Airlines recognises that there are passengers who are allergic to nuts. We would like to inform you that we do serve nut products on board, and that there may be trace elements of unspecified nut ingredients in meals and snacks. Additionally, other customers may bring nuts on board. Hence, we are not able to guarantee a nut-free environment on a Brussels Airlines-operated flight. When making your travel arrangements, we recommend that you assess the extent of any allergies or other medical conditions.
