Food allergies and intolerance

If you suffer from a serious food allergy, you can request an appropriate special meal when booking or at least 7 days before departure.

If you suffer a serious allergy from inhalation of or exposure to a particular food, TAP is not able to guarantee that the plane’s cabin is free of the allergen in question, as on board service cannot be altered and it is not possible to monitor foods or products brought on board by passengers.

We recommend that you see your doctor before travelling and carry appropriate medication in your hand luggage.

Because kids have special tastes, TAP provides meals prepared specially with babies and children in mind.
