Emirates Airline, the world’s biggest carrier by international traffic, is cutting flights to five U.S. cities after actions by the Trump administration slowed bookings from Middle Eastern countries.

The Dubai-based carrier’s action is the clearest sign of the commercial impact of President Donald Trump’s efforts to curtail immigration from several Muslim-majority countries and limit the use of electronics on some U, S, bound flights.

“Over the past three months, we have seen a significant deterioration in the booking profiles on all our U.S. routes, across travel segments,” the airline said. “Emirates has therefore responded as any profit-oriented enterprise would and we will redeploy capacity to serve demand on other routes on our global network.”
