Greece to allow some flights from 'highly vaccinated countries'

The Greek Minister for Tourism Haris Theoharis said on Tuesday that Greece hopes to open its borders to flights from the United Kingdom and other countries with high COVID-19 vaccination rates from May 14. In the meantime, the country will allow a limited number of airports to receive flights starting in April, Theoharis told the Guardian.

"From sometime in mid-April we should be able to accept UK citizens, and those from other highly vaccinated countries, to test the new rules at a few entry points, not all 20 airports, but the ones most commonly used, such as Corfu, Heraklion in Crete, Athens and Thessaloniki," he explained. However, British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace previously cast doubts on the prospect of international travel, citing rising infection rates in other countries.
