Spanish airline Air Europa has announced that it will resume its direct route connecting Athens to Madrid as of Thursday, July 16.

All passengers arriving in Spain from other countries are required to complete the Ministry of Health form prior to travel and have it available on arrival to hand over to Spain’s health authority when required.
