Emirates Airline has halted services between 104 destinations, a major increase from its 35 destinations halted just a week ago.

According to Reuters, the freeze marks 65% of its global portfolio, with destinations including New York, Delhi and Melbourne. Other destinations include Mumbai, Paris and Rio de Janeiro.

The Dubai-based carrier last week revealed it has started asking its cabin crew and pilots to take paid or unpaid leave as travel restrictions lower the demand for air travel.

International Air Transport Association (IATA) has suggested that the industry could need as much as $200 billion to save airlines from collapse.
