Non-essential travel between Greek prefectures still remains prohibited, the Hellenic Civil Aviation Authority (HCAA) said on Saturday.
According to the HCAA’s updated aviation directive (NOTAM) on air travel in Greece, all restrictions for domestic flights in the country have been extended until Monday, April 5.
The ban on non-essential domestic air travel is part of the Greek government’s efforts to curb the spread of coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic in the country and concerns all domestic scheduled, commercial and general/business flights.
The updated aviation directive states 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).
Covid-19 travel restrictions for all international flights to Greece have also been extended until April 5. The restrictions include a 7-day quarantine measure for all arrivals from abroad (except passengers from Israel that hold a Covid-19 vaccination certificate and negative PCR test) as well as special restrictions for flights to Greece from the UK and the United Arab Emirates.
