For special meal requests, please note the following:

  • We are unable to accept requests for specific ingredients or a combination of special meals offered e.g. a special meal that is low lactose and gluten free.
  • Only one type of special meal can be requested per passenger.
  • We are unable to provide nut-free special meals. We recommend guests who suffer from allergies (such as peanut allergies) bring their own meal onboard (subject to Enhanced Security Measures for carry-on baggage) as we are unable to guarantee that our meals are completely allergen free. Nuts may be served on your flight and other passengers may bring food on board containing nuts.
  • Virgin Australia cannot guarantee an allergy-free environment on board our aircraft. If you have a life-threatening allergy you must carry appropriate medication with you, within easy reach and be able to administer it if required. Please see our Medical Conditions page for further information.
