Italian airline Alitalia has cancelled peanuts on a flight after learning that a child with a potentially fatal allergy would be travelling with the carrier. The three-year-old child has a severe allergy to anything containing peanuts, and experts believe that if somebody on the flight was eating peanuts then the boy could become ill. Therefore, Alitalia has also promised not to serve peanuts on the aircraft prior to the boy's flight.

Malaysia and Thailand will examine low-cost carriers servicing both countries as a way to promote greater cooperation. Both the Malaysian prime minister and his Thai counterpart agreed on the need for cooperation on having low-cost airlines operate in each other's countries. The cooperation will be discussed further by the relevant authorities.

Finnish airline Finnair Oyj said on Wednesday (30 July) that it would increase its flights to China due to a returning demand. The company said that in mid-August it would have four weekly flights to Beijing, and would also launch three weekly flights to Shanghai in September.
