Greece extends ban on UK flights Save

The Greek government is extending a ban on direct flights arriving from Britain, pushing it back to July 15. Direct flights from Sweden have also been banned until this date.

There were high hopes that summer holidays to Greece would be given the green light this week, as the Government prepares to announce a list of 'air bridge' countries in the coming days.

Air bridges will effectively mean people can travel abroad again; quarantine will be lifted for anyone arriving back into the UK from air bridge destinations, and the FCO travel ban will change � it has advised against all but essential travel since March.

The government is expected to introduce a traffic light system that will classify countries depending on the prevalence of coronavirus. �Green� will mean they are safer than the UK, �amber� meaning less safe, and �red� will mean arrivals will still need to self isolate on return from that country.
