The effect of Corona Virus on Air Transportation

With the recent out break of the dreaded disease Corona Virus
The airline and hospitality industries in the Netherlands are already experiencing severe symptoms from the coronavirus. Hospitality sector association KHN reports that cancellations have risen by 48%, according to a survey of almost 4,000 of its members. Meanwhile Schiphol airport has announced that passenger numbers dropped by a fifth in the first week of March. If all flights to and from the United States are temporarily cancelled – as president Donald Trump has announced – Schiphol expects the fall to be 30%. Galleries like the Van Gogh Museum are closed, train stations deserted and parents limited to dropping off their children at the doors of schools a day after prime minister Mark Rutte banned meetings of more than 100 people and called for everyone with cold symptoms to self-isolate.
