British-based budget airline EasyJet has announced that it will be banning the sale of peanuts on their flights to protect passengers with allergies.

According to a report in CNN Travel, the airline will also ban passengers from consuming products containing nuts. For passengers who have nut allergies, you will still be required to notify the airline in advance.

“The safety and welfare of all of our customers and crew is our highest priority so we have a number of procedures in place to assist customers traveling with a nut allergy,” a spokesperson for the airline told the publication.

“We ask that any customers with a nut allergy notify us ahead of travel and we will request that other passengers traveling on the flight do not consume any products containing nuts that they have brought with them onboard.

“We have also stopped the sale of peanuts onboard and will be removing the last product from our inflight range which contains nuts in the coming months.”

The move comes after airlines such as Qantas, Southwest Airlines, Lufthansa and British Airways also banned the sale of nuts on flights.

What are your thoughts on this? Do you think all airlines should ban nuts on their flights?
