The Hellenic Civil Aviation Authority (HCAA) on Sunday issued an aviation directive (NOTAM) that extends travel restrictions for domestic flights (travel between prefectures) in Greece until 6am on March 8.

The aviation directive is part of the Greek government’s efforts to curb the spread of coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic in the country.

Non-essential domestic travel remains banned

The updated aviation directive (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 emergency flights, Hellenic national healthcare system flights, state flights, sanitary flights, humanitarian 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).

Authorities have also extended the Covid-19 travel restrictions for all international flights to Greece, until March 8. The restrictions include a 7-day quarantine measure for all arrivals from abroad as well as special restrictions for flights to Greece from the UK, Albania, North Macedonia and Russia.
