With a comprehensive product launch & marketing plan for 2018 it will be widely available in over 13 countries. According to ACAAI Annual Scientific Meeting, peanut allergy in children has increased 21% since 2010. Approximately 2m people in the UK have a mild- to life-threatening food allergy and with a lack of regulation at the moment, flying remains risky and even detrimental for these people. There is currently no policy in place on how airlines should deal with allergies, but the increasing prevalence of the condition, coupled with heightened concern from passengers means many have independently updated their procedures to reduce allergen risks. Swiss Air is the first airline to have received it’s “Allergy-Friendly” designation from the European Centre for Allergy Research Foundation (ECARF). It is inevitable this will become more common among airlines in the near future.
