CAIRO – Greece thanked Egypt for helping repatriate Greeks stranded due to travel limitations from the coronavirus pandemic measures.

A total of 72 people will board an extraordinary Air Cairo flight on Thursday morning to Athens. They include 65 Greek nationals or relatives of Greek nationals, as well as 7 Romanian and Swiss individuals, who will travel on to their own countries.

The special flight will leave Egypt at 10:30 in the morning and will return with Egyptian nationals stranded in Greece, who will be quarantined at a hotel in Marsa Alam by the Red Sea.
