American Airlines to resume flights to Athens in August

Advertisment

American Airlines has announced it will resume flights to the Greek capital on August 5.

In the official statement, American Airlines note that international travel continues to be “diminished” and its schedule restructure reflects a low demand for international travel.

Initially they were scheduled to resume flights to Athens from its Chicago hub in June.

Last year, American Airlines celebrated the inaugural flight between Chicago O’Hare International Airport and Athens Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport, marking the first non-stop flight between the two cities.

American Airlines continues to make investments to reassure customers their safety, well-being and peace of mind remain at the forefront of every decision the company makes.

The airline will continue robust cleaning procedures on all mainline departures, including expanded cleaning to disinfect seats, tray tables, seat buckles, air vents and other surfaces inside the aircraft. Other measures include electrostatic spraying of every surface of the interior of the aircraft, which eliminates 99.999% of viruses and bacteria within 10 minutes and creates a protective layer for up to seven days. All American mainline aircraft and most regional aircraft are equipped with onboard HEPA filters that provide a complete air change every two to four minutes, similar to the standard for hospitals.

Greece’s borders will be “open” from June 15th, with flights permitted to land in Athens and Thessaloniki. The countries are: Albania, Australia, Austria, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, China, Croatia, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Germany, Hungary, Israel, Japan, Latvia, Lebanon, Lithuania, Malta, Montenegro, New Zealand, North Macedonia, Norway, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Korea, Switzerland, and Finland.
