In one of the strongest signs yet that President Trump is having a negative impact on US tourism, the Middle Eastern airline said that next month it would cut the number of weekly flights it makes to the US from 126 to 101. Twice daily flights to Los Angeles, Boston and Seattle will be reduced to one a day. The Dubai government-owned carrier claimed Trumps failed travel ban along with tougher security restrictions for travellers from the Middle East and North Africa had sent demand for US-bound flights plummeting.

The recent actions taken by the US government relating to the issuance of entry visas, heightened security vetting, and restrictions on electronic devices in aircraft cabins, have had a direct impact on consumer interest and demand for air travel into the US, the airline said in a statement. Emirates claimed it had seen healthy growth in the US until the start of the year.

The UN World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) concurs. It claimed recently that the US lost $185 million (152m) in tourism revenue after Trumps first travel ban was introduced. The ban prohibited citizens of Iraq, Iran, Syria, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen from entering the US for 90 days. It was quickly overruled by a federal judge.
