Greece stops flights from Barcelona

Greece temporarily bans all passenger flights arriving from Barcelona and the greater Catalonia region, Deputy Minister of Civil Protection and Crisis Management Nikos Hardalias said on Friday.

The measure will take effect from Monday 31 August at midnight. Taken to protect public health from the further spread of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Hardalias also announced the extension of travel restrictions for foreign visitors until September 19.

Greece is asking visitors from Bulgaria, Romania, Malta, Spain, the United Arab Emirates, Albania and Skopje to take a negative Covid-19 test before entering the country.
Instead, due to improved epidemiological data, the Netherlands will be removed from the list, Mr Hardalias said.
