Greece is on her way to reopen her land borders on 1 July, alongside 27 airports for direct flights from abroad, as Greek Government Spokesman Stelios Petsas told reporters today.

In particular, Stelios Petsas stated that “the border crossing stations of Evzoni, Kakavia, Krystallopigi, Promachonas, Nymphaea, Kastanies and Kipi will be reopening, thus restoring movement with the neighboring countries of Turkey, Bulgaria, North Macedonia and Albania”.

It is recalled that, from July 1st, 27 Greek airports, 20 of which located in central cities, will resume flights from abroad, including Heraklion, Chania, Corfu, Rhodes and Mykonos, but also 7 smaller ones in Ioannina, Sitia, Lemnos, Kythira, Skyros, Paros and Chios.

In addition, starting next Wednesday, Patras and Igoumenitsa will start accepting ships from Italy, while the ports in Piraeus, Rhodes, Corfu, Volos and Katakolo will receive incoming cruise ships, although no trips have been scheduled yet.

As for third countries outside the European Union, Greece is planning her moves according to the list compiled by the EU to be published on June 30, while direct flights from the United Kingdom and Sweden will not be allowed until July 15. /ibna
