The U.S. ban on citizens travelling into the country from Europe has piled on the pressure on airlines that have already been affected by the impact of the coronavirus.
The 30-day restrictions are comparable to those implemented in China early February and was announced after the virus had spread across the world including the European continent and in the United States.
However, flights departing from Europe can still arrive to a restricted number of airports in the United States under specific circumstances. However, Only U.S. citizens, permanent residents and immediate family members were provided entrance.
The restrictions have barred flights from Italy, France, and Germany and will heavily batter leading foreign carriers like Lufthansa from Germany and Air France KLM.
Lufthansa and Air France KLM have yet to respond to a request for comment.
