ANA and JAL to reduce domestic flights amid coronavirus outbreak

Move seen as another blow to Japan economy after schools and events shut down

The two carries have already slashed international flights, especially those between China.

TOKYO -- All Nippon Airways and Japan Airlines will reduce domestic flights amid slumping demand due to the new coronavirus, the carriers announced on Wednesday.

The move will likely be another hit to the Japanese economy, which is already reeling after Prime Minister Shinzo Abe called for school closures and cancellations of large events to contain the rising number of coronavirus cases.
