Demand for travel to the United States over the coming months has flattened out following a positive start to the year, with uncertainty over a possible new travel order likely deterring visitors, travel analysis company ForwardKeys said on Monday.

ForwardKeys, which analyzes 16 million flight reservations a day from major global reservation systems, also said that travel from the United States to and from the Middle East has been especially hard hit after President Donald Trump's move to ban people from seven Muslim-majority countries."Uncertainty reigns and the presidential rhetoric appears to be deterring visitors to the US," ForwardKeys founder Olivier Jager said in a statement.



US travel demand is set to be a topic at the world's largest travel fair, the ITB, in Berlin this week.
