Ban on flights from UK not to be extended

The government is not working on a new regulation on air traffic bans, and the one that is in force expires on January 13, Deputy Minister of Infrastructure Marcin Horała told Polish Press Agency (PAP). This means that from Thursday, the ban on landing in Poland for planes from Great Britain and Northern Ireland will no longer apply.

Due to the new variant of the SARS-CoV-2 virus being detected in the territory of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, these countries were put on the list of countries banned from flying to Poland in December last year. This ban is valid until midnight on January 13 this year.

"The regulation expires on January 13 and we are not working on a new one," said Horała, who until now was responsible for drafting the bans on air traffic.

"No administrative ban on flights. When and what kind of flights will appear in the network is the carrier's decision. All newcomers are subject to a 10-day quarantine", the deputy minister wrote on Twitter.

This was the last country banned from flying to Poland.
