British Airline company Easyjet has banned nuts on flights to help protect passengers with allergies.
This also include a ban on eating nut products if somebody on board has an allergy to them.
Nut policy differs from airline to airline as there are no general or blanket rules governing the serving of nuts on flights at present.
A proposed United Kingdom passenger charter is currently under consultation. The plans which could include rules for protecting allergy sufferers are part of the government’s Aviation 2050 strategy.
Despite the ban on serving peanuts on flights, airline firms noted they cannot guarantee a nut-free environment.
Easyjet said: “We recommend that passengers inform us of their allergy at the time of booking which enables us to pass this information onto the cabin crew operating the flight.”
Passengers can also notify the airline during the online booking process.
