The Greek National Tourism Organisation (GNTO) continues its campaign “Endless Greek Summer”.

Greece is a country that is rich with history, culture, and mythology from democracy to philosophy, from cobbled stone to ivory statue, from the tip of the glorious Acropolis in Athens to the majestic splendor of Kamara in Thessaloniki.

Pictures of Greece’s unique summer and the carefree experiences it offers are on display and promoted at the country’s international airports, as well as on public transport in Athens.

The campaign which will run for two months, aims to attract both the attention of Greeks and foreigners.

“Endless Greek Summer” includes the screening of messages on panels and screens at Athens International Airport “Eleftherios Venizelos” and at 14 regional airports, on 50 buses and 30 trolley buses circulating in Athens and its suburbs, as well as 250 bus stops in Attica.

“We chose to make use of any opportunity to support tourist traffic at this difficult time and for this reason GNTO has activated outdoor advertisement. GNTO understands that special conditions apply this year and is taking additional initiatives, apart from the major campaign abroad which is fully underway,” GNTO Secretary General Dimitris Fragakis said.

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.
