According to the migration and asylum ministry, 130 Greeks currently stranded in London due to the lockdown measures will be returning to Athens with the return flight.

The plane will be departing at 9:00, in the presence of Alternate Migration and Asylum Minister Giorgos Koumoutsakos and UK Ambassador in Athens Kate Smith, as well as the Special Secretary for the Protection of Unaccompanied Minors Irene Agapidaki.
