Europe’s leading tour operator, TUI, has scheduled more than 120 flights to Greece up to the end of May.
These flights concern departures from Germany and then from the United Kingdom to the airports of Heraklion, Rhodes, Corfu, Zakynthos and Kos. Up next will be Araxos, in the Peloponnese, and other destinations, as arrivals are set to soar as the season continues.
Despite Greece not being included on the UK's travel ‘green list’, TUI is still selling holiday packages from Britain.
Theocharis to promote Greek tourism in London
Tourism Minister Harry Theoharis will have a series of meetings with top UK officials, representatives of airline companies and tourism market executives during his visit to London between Monday and Wednesday.
The purpose of his trip is to promote the opening of the 2021 Greek tourism season on May 15 to all tourists who have a vaccination or tested negative for COVID-19 less than 72 hours before arriving in Greece.
Specifically, Theocharis will meet with UK Minister for Asia at the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) Nigel Adams.
The two officials are expected to discuss the terms that will allow unobstructed movement between Greece and the UK in the immediate future.
Theocharis will also have meetings with top executives of the three largest UK airlines – British Airways, EasyJet and Jet2, the Tourism Ministry said.
