Emirates Airline bookings plunge 35% after Trump travel ban

emiratesEmirates Airline President Tim Clark said Thursday that the original travel ban imposed by U.S. President Donald Trump caused the pace of bookings at the giant Middle East airline to plummet 35%.

The travel ban, first issued in January, barred individuals from several Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S. It caused chaos at airports as airlines were forced to prevent ticketed passengers from boarding flights to adjust to new U.S. immigration rules.

The shooting last month of an Indian man at a suburban Kansas bar also spooked travelers, Clark said.

The pace of bookings has started to recover but is still lower than before the travel ban, Clark said. When it would fully recover is uncertain, he said.
