Emirates Goes Solo in Ebola Shutdown as Top Carriers Keep Flying

Emirates, the world’s largest airline by international traffic, is going it alone in scrapping a West African route in response to the deadly Ebola outbreak as rival operators keep flying with heightened medical checks.

Emirates halted services to Conakry in Guinea, one of three states blighted by the epidemic, at the weekend. The Dubai-based company says flights are suspended until further notice, citing guidance from health authorities including the U.S. government-backed Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
