Dealing with Peanut-dust Allergy
Aloha does not offer a peanut free flight therefore we encourage our
customers to consider the possibility of exposure; particularly when
accepting any in-flight meal or snack. Aloha strongly advises that
passengers take all necessary precautions to prepare for the
possibility of exposure. Passengers may wish to bring their own food
items on their flight. Many passengers take the precaution of carrying
Epinephrine (epi-pens) or other suitable anaphylaxis treatment
prescribed by their physician that can be self-administered.
