Destination Gold Coast has labelled the coronavirus the biggest tourism crisis the city has faced, amid fears airlines could reduce service to the city.

Ms Battista said airports and airlines have expressed concern to Destination Gold Coast that"valuable aviation routes" could be lost due to poor patronage, including nine routes to Brisbane and the Gold Coast.

Weeks after the novel coronavirus was first discovered, experts say incomplete data from China is limiting their ability to understand it — but they are seeing some differences between it and other infectious diseases. Ms Battista said despite recent success increasing market share in visitors from east coast capital cities, the Gold Coast's tourism sector must tap into more markets outside of China.
