Travel curbs on European travelers to U.S. to hit airlines - trade body

March 11 (Reuters) - A United States travel ban on European visitors will hit U.S. airlines, their employees, and travelers "extremely hard", trade group Airlines for America said on Wednesday.

Earlier, President Donald Trump suspended travel from Europe to the United States, except for the UK, for 30 days starting on Friday as he responded to mounting pressure to take action against the spread of the coronavirus. (Reporting by David Shepardson in Washington; Editing by Himani Sarkar)
