Hardalias: Thessaloniki Ready to Receive First Flights from Abroad on June 15

ATHENS — Deputy Minister of Civil Protection and Crisis Management Nikos Hardalias said that Thessaloniki, like Athens, is ready to start receiving tourists on June 15 from 29 countries that are on the list of safe origins, speaking at Thessaloniki International Airport "Makedonia" on Tuesday.

The Athens and Thessaloniki International Airports are the first airports to open to flights from abroad following the coronavirus restrictions.

After meeting with the health personnel that will be carrying out sample tests on foreign passengers at the Thessaloniki airport, he said that Greece's Covid-19 testing protocol will be revised and if need be adapted every 2-3 days, depending on the latest epidemiological data.

Hardalias also said he would return to the airport on Sunday, a day before the first foreign flights.
