Covid-19 disclaimer: Although these campaigns are aimed at improving travel for vegans, we recognise that travel is severely restricted at the moment due to the pandemic. We encourage everyone to follow government advice and to do all they can to reduce the spread of coronavirus.

We're turning out attention to inflight catering and partnering with Humane Society International UK!

Of course, we all need to be flying less. However, this campaign exists to ensure that vegans who do fly are adequately catered for on planes.

While things are slowly improving, we still receive messages from people who have had bad experiences on flights. Sometimes a vegan meal is difficult or impossible to order, or arrives and is clearly unsuitable for vegans. In some cases, this can leave a passenger with only crisps and nuts to eat over the course of a long-haul flight.

We want airlines to add well-labelled vegan options to their standard menus, meaning that they do not have to be requested specially and are available for anyone to order. We are reaching out to airlines to speak to them directly about this, but we need your help!

Introducing FlyVe – the first rating system for inflight vegan catering. If you have recently flown as a vegan and would like to share your experiences (good or bad!) please do fill in the form and encourage your friends and family to do the same. This will help us to prove the demand for delicious plant-based options, and give us an opportunity to thank companies that are already doing a good job.
