The Hellenic Civil Aviation Authority (HCAA) on Saturday updated an aviation directive (NOTAM) that allows only essential domestic travel between all Greek airports.
The directive that bans trips between prefectures for non-essential travel reasons has been extended by one week, until 6am on Monday, February 1.
The NOTAM concerns domestic scheduled, commercial and general/business flights and foresees that only essential travel is allowed for health and business reasons, family reunification, and returning to permanent residence.
Exempt from the restrictions are Hellenic national healthcare system flights, state flights, sanitary flights, humanitarian flights, emergency flights, military flights, cargo flights, fire fighting flights, frontex flights, technical landing flights (where passengers do not disembark) and ferry flights (return of with crew without passengers).
The HCAA on Friday issued an update for its Covid-19 aviation directives that includes information on travel restrictions for all international flights and extends the 7-day quarantine measure for all arrivals from abroad.
All aviation directives are issued as part of the Greek government’s efforts to curb the spread of the coronavirus pandemic in the country.
