Starting Monday, April 5, Greece resumes flights to and from its three neighboring countries: Turkey, Albania and North Macedonia.
As the Hellenic Civil Aviation Authority announced, flights from Albania and North Macedonia will be allowed to land in any Greek airport (not just at “Eleftherios Venizelos” Athens International Airport as it is currently the case).
Flights from Turkey that have been entirely banned will resume and be allowed to reach any Greek airport.
Nevertheless, passengers from the three countries, like any passenger coming to Greece from abroad, will have to self- isolate for seven days in the place they declare in the obligatory Passenger Locator Form (available at travel.gov.gr. ) they complete before arriving.
Furthermore, they will have to present a negative result of PCR test for Covid-19 taken within the last 72 hours prior to their arrival. All foreign passengers are subject to random tests upon arrival.
UK: “Difficult to travel abroad”
Greece plans test-run flights from UK in April and bets a lot on British tourists to save the summer.
But the Prime Minister of UK has struck a heavy blow on these aspirations.
Speaking at the Downing Street press conference, Boris Johnson sai that “summer holidays abroad look difficult for the time being’.
He even suggested that tougher border controls might be imposed to stop new coronavirus variants being brought in the UK.
