EASA publishes list of airports in COVID-19 high risks countries (UPD)

As Greek authorities are preparing a list of the countries allowed to fly tourists to Greece as of June 15, the European Union’s air safety agency EASA has published a list of airports located in areas with high risk transmission of COVID-19.

The list is developed in coordination with EASA Member States and based on the information from WHO, ECDC and other reputable public health institutes.

According to daily ethnos, the EASA list is going to “assist” the Greek Civil Protection in taking its decisions.

Greece has announced to publish its own list by the end of May. Opening of Greece’s border to foreign tourists is planned in three phases: on June 15, July 1 and July 15. In the first phase citizens from some 20 countries will be allowed in the country, in the second citizens of more countries will be added on the list, while restrictions will be lifted in the third phase, July 15 as Tourism Minister Haris Theoharis said last week.

Take note that independently from what Greece decides, some countries may have 14-day quarantine even for their own citizens when they return form abroad and some recommend refraining from traveling abroad with deadline to a much later time.

EASA regularly updates its airports at risk lists.The following list has been published on May 19 with effect as of May 22, 2020.
