All of the meals we serve on board are prepared in strict compliance with Halal regulations. All of our meals and products are suitable for Muslims, so there is no need to make a request in advance.

Medical requirements and allergies

If you have any concerns about flying with a medical condition or an allergy, please get in touch with your doctor before travelling with us. We do not accept responsibility for any allergic reaction on board our flights. 

If you have a severe allergy or have any other specific dietary requirements, we recommend that you bring your own food on board with you, keeping in mind the current liquid restrictions.

Flying with a peanut allergy?

We do not guarantee a peanut-free environment on board. Nuts may be served on all of our aircraft or used as an ingredient in any of our menus. Other passengers may also bring items on board that contain nuts.

It is possible that traces of peanuts or their derivatives could be in the cabin environment or the aircraft air conditioning. An allergic reaction to peanuts or any derivative can be serious.

How to request your meal

Please request your special meal at least 24 hours before your flight, or we will not have your meal on board.

If your flight or a segment of your journey is operated by one of our partner airlines, some special meals may not be available on board. Please contact the airline directly to discuss your request.
