Check your travel insurance is appropriate for your health needs.
Check the airline policy regarding food allergies in advance, particularly for international travel.
Ensure that you have your two adrenaline (epinephrine) injectors, ASCIA Action Plan and ASCIA Travel Plan with you and within reach, at all times.
It is recommended that you carry your own food for the trip where appropriate (e.g. on flights).
Wipe down tray tables, arm rests, remote controls and TV screens with wet wipes when you board the plane.
Some airlines have food exclusion zones as part of their management policy, however airline staff cannot control food other passengers bring on board.
Remember your adrenaline injector must be within reach at all times. Do not put your adrenaline injector into checked luggage or overhead storage.
