Greece changes its mind and “opens” to Italian tourists, but with a note that smacks of excuse to send them all home. From 15 June to 30 June international flights are allowed at the airports of Athens and Thessaloniki. If the journey was made from one of the airports on the list of affected areas drawn up by the European Aviation Safety Agency (Easa), which includes the airports of Lombardy, Veneto, Piedmont and Emilia Romagna, passengers will be tested on arrival. One night stay in a designated hotel is required.
If the test is negative, the passenger gets in self-quarantine for 7 days. If the test is positive, the passenger is quarantined under control for 14 days, according to what is read on the website of the Greek embassy in Italy. In both cases, the direct consequence seems quite evident: who has 7 days of vacation (not to mention 14) to throw away? Therefore, those who will not be able to carry out the swab in Italy will certainly not want to go to Greece. So for Athens everything is resolved.
