The previous wording of the resolution applied to eight countries (China, Iran, Belarus, Spain, the United Kingdom, Sweden, the Russian Federation, Ukraine) and the Italian region of Lombardy and was valid until July 15.
In the new wording, Lombardy was removed from the list, and the ban for the remaining eight countries was extended until July 30.
At the same time, the ban on passenger flights was extended to ten more countries, in particular, North Macedonia, Albania, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and Kosovo, as well as Moldova, Romania, Bulgaria, and Egypt.
Exceptions were made for cargo flights, medical flights or flights for the purpose of transporting seasonal workers in the agricultural and forestry sectors and staff caring for the sick and elderly. Flights were also allowed "in the interests of the republic." This category includes flights that have special economic, political or socio-political significance for Austria.
