Posted March 15, 2020 06:15:36Airlines are preparing for a sudden rise in air travel to the U.S.
Airliners are hoping to attract more business as passengers flock to the country.
The average ticket price of a U.K. domestic flight has increased by more than 50 percent in the last year, to $350 per person from $150, and more than 2,000 domestic flights were canceled due to an outbreak of coronavirus, according to the American Airlines Group.
Aircraft manufacturers are also concerned about what that will mean for the jobs that are built around air travel.
“You’re losing all the people that are building the aircraft and are going to build a lot of these airplanes to service the U: that’s a lot less of an economic driver for us,” said Jeff Schott, president of Aircraft World USA, a consulting firm.
“So it’s a concern to the airlines and we’re all really trying to understand how this is going to play out.”

More than 100 people died in the town of Camden, which has been the scene of more than 20 deaths in a single day, according in the CDC report.
The first death was reported around 7:15 a.m.
The death toll in Camden was expected to climb as more cases were confirmed, but the city has since been working to contain the outbreak.
Camden Mayor Mark D’Ambrosio issued a public health alert Monday that instructed residents to wear masks and close windows and doors as they are still testing the virus and preparing for possible coronavillosis cases.
