  • [01] Flights at European airports normalising

    Flights at European airports including Greece were normalising at the weekend in the wake of mass cancellations by airlines last week when British police foiled a terrorist plan to blow up transatlantic airliners.

    Security remained tight at Greek airports with passengers travelling to the United Kingdom and the USA asked to contact their airline for baggage restrictions and additional safety measures during their journey.

    Some flights to the two destinations were delayed due to extra security and passengers were asked to minimise disruption by checking in early.

    The content of hand luggage was restricted to a small number of essential personal items including passport, money, tickets and keys. Liquids were banned.

    The government repeated that Greece enjoys a high degree of security.

    Tourism Development Minister Fani Palli-Petralia forecast that the situation in Britain would not affect tourism arrivals to Greece.

    Athens had successfully hosted the 2004 Olympic Games, confirming the view that Greece was a safe travel destination.

    She added that a rising number of tourist arrivals was partly due to an eye-catching publicity campaign overseas.
