Greece open to relaxing quarantine rules for UK tourists

By Samuel Horti

Greece is open to the idea of an “air bridge” with the UK that would allow tourists to travel back and forth between the two countries without quarantining for two weeks.

All arrivals to Greece must isolate for 14 days, but tourism minister Haris Theoharis said the government could drop the measure for UK travellers, if the move was reciprocated in Britain.

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps has said the government is considering opening “air bridges” with other European countries that have slowed the spread of coronavirus.
