A dramatic decline in passenger traffic due to fears of the new coronavirus have led two more airlines to suspend flights at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport in Hebron.
Air Canada and Vacation Express - an Atlanta-based tour operator that flys to Mexico, Costa Rica and other popular vacation destinations - have both suspended their international flight operations, airport officials announced on their website.
Delta Air Lines, which flew the only nonstop flight from CVG to virus-plagued Europe, announced last week that it was suspending the flight to Paris.
"The airport is experiencing a sudden and significant decline in passenger volumes. This is a fluid situation, and airlines are making changes rapidly,'' airport officials said in a statement.
In an unprecedented move, the U.S. State Department on Thursday urged Americans not to travel overseas and to return to the United States if they can.
