Published on 20 November 2020

Greece’s Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) on Sunday issued a NOTAM on the rules applying to all foreign and domestic flights for the period between November 9-30, during which the country will be under a nationwide lockdown to restrict the spread of Covid-19.


Starting at 6:00 on November 9, domestic flights and commercial and general/business aviation to all airports in the nation will be permitted only for essential travel, including for reasons of health, professional/business trips, family reasons (reunification of families), and a return to one’s permanent place of residence.

Exempted from the restrictions are Hellenic national healthcare system flights, state flights, medical relief flights, humanitarian flights, emergency flights, military flights, fire-fighting flights, Frontex flights, technical landings where passengers do not disembark, ferry flights, and cargo flights.
