New countries open for Polish flights

From Wednesday, the government has lifted the ban on air connections with a number of new countries. Among them are Great Britain, Japan, Canada, South Korea and Ukraine.

On Tuesday evening, a new regulation of the Council of Ministers of June 30, 2020 regarding air traffic bans was published in the Journal of Laws.

The regulation allows air connections with member states of the European Free Trade Agreement (EFTA), EEA, Switzerland and the EU, except for Sweden and Portugal. Compared to the previous regulation two weeks ago, Great Britain was removed from the no-fly list.

The ordinance also contains a list of other countries to which the no-fly rule no longer applies. These are: Montenegro, Georgia, Japan, Canada, Albania, South Korea and Ukraine.

The Regulation shall enter into force on 1 July 2020 and expires on July 14, 2020.
