The Hellenic Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) extended the notice to Airmen (NOTAM) that states all international flights to Greece will only land at Athens International Airport “Eleftherios Venizelos”, as part of the country’s preventive measures against Covid-19, GTP Headlines reported.

Athens International Airport also released safety guidelines for passengers travelling through its premises.

According to the revised NOTAM, all international flights will be permitted to land only at AIA until Tuesday, June 30 (the previous date was May 31). The NOTAM adds that international flights to other airports in Greece are suspended.

Last week, Greece presented the country’s restart plan for the sector after the COVID-19 pandemic subsides, which will see tourists allowed to enter Greece without taking a coronavirus test or remain in quarantine when international flights restart on July 1.

Further, the NOTAM said the flight ban for seven countries (Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom, The Netherlands, Albania, Northern Macedonia and Turkey) will continue.

Greece’s borders continue to remain temporarily closed to non-EU nationals until May 31.
