Greece’s Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) announced that young passengers aged 12-17 who travel to Greek islands from mainland airports on domestic flights can board by providing a negative self-test conducted within 24 hours before travel.

The age group 12-17 is determined for  those born before 1. July 2009.

Children below 12 years old do not need at test in order fly from the Greek mainland to the islands.

The CAA added the self-test to the standing directive for all passengers, minors or adults, which requires a negative PCR diagnostic test taken up to 72 hours ahead of departure, or a negative rapid test taken in the last 48 hours, or a vaccination certificate or a certificate citing recovery from coronavirus infection.

This entire directive is in effect until Monday, August 2, 2021.
