Flying with Formula – Tips for your Next Trip
If you are planning a flying vacation, before you book, contact your airline’s customer service department to notify them of your travel requirements as soon as you can. Airline policies regarding travelling with metabolic formula will differ so it is worth checking with a customer service representative before you arrive at the airport.
Airplane food is generally not PKU or low protein diet-friendly so you may need to pack (or purchase prior to boarding) any food or snacks you think you might need during the flight.
If you are booking an international flight you will need to order a special meal. Please note that even meals listed as low-protein or vegetarian/vegan may not be low enough in protein for the PKU diet, so explain your dietary requirements clearly.
Always take a travel letter from your clinic explaining your medical condition, especially for international travel
Always pack extra PKU or metabolic formula in your carry-on bag in case of delays
Do not mix PKU or metabolic formula powders with liquid until you go past the security screening checkpoint
Keep your PKU or metabolic formula in its original sealed containers (packages, cans or sachets)
Take a copy of your child’s diet prescription with you
Take plenty of snacks for the flight
Useful PKU Traveler’s Tip
It may be useful to switch to a powdered PKU or metabolic formula when travelling abroad, to reduce your overall luggage weight. However, ready-to-drink pouches that don’t require mixing are also particularly convenient when traveling. Contact your dietitian for more information on these options
If you are traveling overseas, ask your metabolic healthcare professional team for information on where low-protein food supplies can be obtained in your destination country
If you are shipping your PKU or metabolic formula or food to a hotel prior to your arrival, be sure to label the box clearly with your name and arrival date on the package. Call and alert the hotel that a shipment will be arriving for you.
