Athens International Airport announced that it will offer Covid-19 testing upon request, to passengers and Athens airport staff.

According to the announcement, from Wednesday 5th August, arriving or departing passengers and any airport employee are able to undertake a diagnostic molecular test (rRT-PCR), daily from 7am to 11pm.

The testing will be carried out in cooperation with the Athens Medical Center to tackle COVID-19 pandemic.

The private covid-19 testing service will cost €70.

Facilities will be set up at the Arrivals Level, between entrances 2 & 3. Test results will be available in 6 hours after samples are taken.

As of July 1, Greece opened to tourism following the relaxation of coronavirus-related restrictions.

All passengers arriving in Greece must fill in a Passenger Locator Form (PLF) at least a day before arrival, providing information that will include their departure airport, the address where they will be staying and the expected duration of their stay in Greece, among others. The information on the form is a key element of the country’s planning for protection against the pandemic and preventing the spread of the virus.

Protocol for Arrivals in Greece as of July 28
