Flights to and from both countries were previously banned temporarily.
According to the new NOTAM, all flights from Albania and North Macedonia are permitted to land only at AIA until Saturday, August 15 (23:59). The NOTAM adds that flights from the two countries to other airports in Greece are suspended.
HCAA on Friday extended the temporary suspension of flights from and to Turkey until Saturday, August 15 (23:59).
The authority also issued a NOTAM stating that all travelers entering Greece from an airport of the United Arab Emirates, Bulgaria and Romania are obliged to present a negative molecular test result (PCR) for Covid-19 upon arrival. The test must be performed up to 72 hours before travelers enter Greece.
