The Air Transport Association has calculated the likely damage to air carriers from traffic restrictions due to coronavirus. Losses airlines will range from 63 to 113 billion US dollars.

The reason for the losses is a drop in demand for flights and the closure of certain destinations. As early as February 25, according to TASS, specialists estimated the probable damage at only $ 30 billion. However, the previous forecast was made on condition that the coronavirus did not go outside of China.

Russia has limited air traffic to 1 April with China from 28 February - with Iran, with 1 March - with Italy and South Korea. These countries are facing a difficult situation with coronavirus.

In late January, WHO recognized an outbreak of coronavirus in China emergency. Russian authorities infect to the list of dangerous for surrounding diseases. In the country closed 16 points passes and suspended air traffic with China.
