Non-essential travel between Greek prefectures still remains prohibited, the Hellenic Civil Aviation Authority (HCAA) said on Saturday.

According to the HCAA’s updated Covid-19 aviation directive (NOTAM) on air travel in Greece, all restrictions for domestic flights in the country have been extended until 6am on Friday, May 14.

The ban on non-essential domestic air travel is part of the Greek government’s efforts to curb the spread of the 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).

Travel between Greek prefectures is expected to be allowed once Greece officially opens for tourism on May 14.
