British holidaymakers will have to wait until 15 July, unless restrictions are extended further.
British holidaymakers will not be allowed to fly to Greece until 15 July, despite the country opening its borders to other international visitors on Wednesday.
The decision, which will also see flights from Sweden banned for another two weeks, was made during a meeting between Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and his officials.
It means Brits with Greek getaways booked for summer holidays should still be able to travel – unless the restrictions are extended further.
On Monday, a group of 180 German doctors, police officers and supermarket workers were the first foreign visitors to touch down on the Greek island of Kos after they were given a free holiday to thank them for their work fighting coronavirus.
Last week, it was confirmed Britons who holiday in France or Spain this summer will not have to isolate when they come home.
Greece was also on a list of countries allowed to form “air bridges” with the UK from 6 July, with TUI, the nation’s biggest holiday company, due to resume routes to four Greek islands on 11 July.
But now Britons will have to wait until 15 July if they want to go, with the Greek PM claiming measures will be under “continuous review”.
