United States’ airways have introduced drastic reductions in flights after President Donald Trump’s administration banned overseas travellers arriving from Europe. American Airlines stated it could scale back all worldwide capability by 75 per cent. “This suspension will last through May 6,” the service stated. “This change is in response to decreased demand and changes to US government travel restrictions due to coronavirus.” It additionally stated home service can be decreased by 20 per cent in April in comparison with final 12 months.
Its competitor Delta stated it could “significantly reduce its US to Europe flying beginning Monday, March 16, following the US government directive restricting travel between the US and Europe.” Southwest Airlines stated it “will likely make service reductions based on demand.”
The restrictions on journey from Europe took impact at midnight Friday and had been later prolonged to Britain and Ireland as of Tuesday. US airways had already suspended flights between the US and Italy, hard-hit by the virus, and earlier between the US and China the place the brand new coronavirus emerged in December.
