Aviation industry groups are urging the federal government to quickly address the impact of the coronavirus on airlines, saying the current economic environment is not sustainable. Airlines for America (A4A) and others in the aviation industry wrote to the Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and congressional leadership on Thursday requesting immediate action. “The breadth and immediacy of the need to act cannot be overstated. It is urgent and unprecedented,” the letter reads. The letter comes as the State Department issued a level four travel advisory to all countries on Thursday, instructing Americans not to travel internationally and calling for U.S. citizens abroad to return home.
