Passengers flying to Greece should no longer be asked to wear mask from 1 June.

The Greek authorities have confirmed that from tomorrow they will only be required on public transport and in hospitals and care facilities.

It said there will no longer be a requirement to wear masks in other indoor spaces, including on flights to and from Greece.

They will be required only on buses, trains and metro services – and on ferries, for the time being.

The European Union announced earlier this month that masks were no longer necessary on flights to and from the union, but several countries – including Greece – opted to keep the rule in place for a bit longer.

As a result, several airlines including Ryanair have insisted passengers wear masks on flights to many countries, including Greece.

However, passengers should be allowed to fly mask-free to Greece from tomorrow.

The Foreign Office has updated its travel advice for Greece to say: “From 1 June, it is only mandatory to wear a mask on public transport and in hospitals and care facilities for the elderly. In all other spaces there is no legal requirement to wear a mask.”

Greece removed entry restrictions for British holidaymakers on 1 May.
