The big difference between SARS and the current nCoV is that it's a LOT easier to screen for patient with SARS, as symptoms onset are a lot quicker with the immune system response. In another word, the existing temperature screening at airports actually work. This time around, somebody can literally carry the virus around for up to 2 weeks without getting sick, then suddenly get very, very sick.
Regarding air service - it'll only stop if (and it's a big IF) China decide to lock down the country and ban any Chinese nationals from leaving the country. Then you'll see a suspension in flights. So far China is only doing that to people living in Hubei AFAIK.
