Inflight dining

Peanut and tree nut allergy

We acknowledge that some passengers may have allergic reactions to peanuts and/or tree nuts. However, due to operational and supplier limitations, Cathay Pacific Airways cannot guarantee a peanut and/or tree nuts-free environment to passengers either in our aircraft cabins or airport lounges.

Peanut and tree nut-free cabin

Cathay Pacific Airways cannot prevent passengers from bringing their own peanut and/or tree nuts products on board, and cannot insist that they do not open or eat them. We are also unable to modify the cabin environment due to individual passenger requests and cannot make general announcements requesting other passengers to refrain from eating peanuts and/or tree nuts.

Further, residual peanut and tree nuts products may be left in aisles, common areas or on seats from one flight to the next. Passengers with documented* peanut and/or tree nuts allergies can, subject to operational limitation, request priority boarding at the boarding gate and bring their own cleaning wipes to wipe down their seating area.

Peanut and tree nut-free meals

Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon cannot provide peanut and/or tree nuts -free meals. It is with regret that Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon cannot guarantee against cross-contamination of peanut and/or tree nuts products within the inflight-catering network. Passengers who require peanut and/or tree nuts free meals are recommended to bring their own food items that do not require chilling or reheating inflight. Please speak to our cabin crew if you want to know more about the ingredients in the meals served inflight.
