– 65 per cent of Brits agree with the move to ban nuts on airlines
– 43 per cent call for all airlines to become allergen free
– 10 per cent vote for stringent training for cabin crews
Following recent news about the call to ban nuts on airlines, a survey released today shows 65 per cent of Brits agree with the move.
Research from a poll of over 4,000 people undertaken by travel specialists Holiday Extras*, has revealed that only two per cent of those questioned believe that people with severe allergies should not travel; with nearly a third (30 percent) of those surveyed stating that nut allergies are far too serious to be taken lightly.
Nearly half (43 per cent) of Brits agree that airlines should become allergen free. What’s more, ten per cent of those questioned believe that cabin crew members should undergo stringent training to recognise the symptoms of a severe allergic reaction.
Commenting on the research, Ant Clarke Cowell at Holiday Extras said: “Allergies are something that need to be taken extremely seriously and airlines and companies should be educated about this issue. For travellers who suffer from allergies, we would recommend researching your holiday before you go to ensure that you are safe and able to provide information ahead to the airline if necessary.”
