- Nut or Peanut Allergies
We do not offer nut-free flights. Meals containing nut or nut derivatives may be served on Air Seychelles flights.
An allergic reaction to peanuts or their by-products can be quite serious. As Air Seychelles cannot guarantee peanut-free meals, we request that you bring your own meal on board if you have a peanut allergy. Please note that other passengers may also bring food onboard which could contain nuts. It is therefore possible that traces of nut residue oils could be passed on to the seating, other surfaces or via the air conditioning system on board the flight.
Air Seychelles accepts no responsibility for any allergic reaction you may suffer whilst on board an Air Seychelles flight. We suggest that you discuss your travel plans with your doctor to assess your fitness to fly with us in this regard.
