Icelandair’s Allergy Policy

The meals offered on our flights do not contain peanuts or peanut products, such as peanut butter. However, trace elements from peanuts may be found in meals.

Tree nuts (e.g., almonds) may also be found in meals on board, and fish and shellfish are sometimes on offer in Saga Class. Unfortunately, it‘s not possible to remove tree nuts, fish, or shellfish from the cabin.

In the case of severe peanut allergy, our cabin crew can make an allergy announcement on board asking other passengers on the flight not to consume foods that contain peanuts. Please contact Icelandair customer support and submit a doctor´s certificate at least 48 hours before departure to request an allergy announcement (please note this is only available on weekdays).

We do, however, wish to stress that Icelandair can in no way restrict other passengers from bringing or consuming their own food on the aircraft, and this may contain peanuts or other allergens. For that reason, it’s possible to find traces of peanuts on seat cushions, armrests, tray tables, or elsewhere in the cabin.

Icelandair cannot guarantee an allergen-free environment on board our aircraft. Therefore we strongly encourage passengers with severe allergies that can result in anaphylaxis to bring an epinephrine auto-injector (EpiPen®) and any other medications they may need.
