Austria extends ban on passenger flights from Ukraine

Austria has extended until July 30 the ban on scheduled passenger flights with Ukraine and a number of other countries, according to the updated resolution of the Federal Ministry for Social Affairs, Health, Care and Consumer Protection of Austria, which bans the landing of aircraft from a number of countries and regions with a high risk of SARS-CoV-2.

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.
