Washington orders suspension of all flights by Chinese airlines into and out of the country after Beijing failed to allow American carriers to resume service to China, US Transportation Department says.
The trade group for global airlines said the Covid-19 virus can potentially contribute to a 13 percent decline in demand for Asian carriers this year.
Some airline companies have cancelled all China flights, while others only cancelled some flights or routes to prevent further spread of the deadly virus.
Airlines have also cancelling flights and adjusting schedules as a growing number of countries raise travel warnings to not just Hubei province where the new coronavirus broke out, but also to the rest of mainland China.
