Shares of airline stocks are trading lower Wednesday morning following the first confirmed case of Ebola in the United States.

An unidentified man who contracted the Ebola virus flew from Liberia to Dallas, Texas, where he is now being quarantined. Although no major carriers have routes to Liberia, the fear of reduced air travel due to Ebola concerns apparently is enough to send the major airline stocks lower.

United Continental Holdings Inc (NYSE: UAL) - down 3.1 percent
American Airlines Group Inc (NYSE: AAL) - down 3.04 percent
Delta Air Lines, Inc. (NYSE: DAL) - down 2.88 percent
