Meal excludes Pork or Pork derived products, shellfish, meat and serving of dairy products together is prohibited.

Kosher meals can be difficult to order, and may not always be available on all flights operated by airlines. They require a lot of time, so plan ahead many airlines require up to 72 hours notice. This is due to the fact that kosher kitchens are not located at all airpot catering kitchens, and the meals need to be ordered in especially. Please also note a number of airlines do not offer Passover meals, it’s best to check with each airline individually.

If you need to check on a specific airline view the airlines section to read about the airline you’re flying with.
