Most affected Spanish airports after cancellation of flights from Italy 2020

As a result of the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in Spain, the central government decided to ban all direct flights from Italy on March 10th, coming into force as of March 11th, 2020. This new effort to contain the transmission of this disease affected the main airports with direct flight connections with Italy, with Barcelona-El Prat as the most stricken by this decision with almost half a million seats affected between March 1st to April 30th, 2020.
On the other hand, Madrid was the Spanish autonomous community that was most affected by the spread of the coronavirus during this period, with over five thousand people infected as of March 19, 2020.
The impact of the outbreak of this disease was such that the global stock markets were affected. The Spanish IBEX-35 was no exception to that, decreasing by 2500 stock market points during the first days of March.
