The European aviation organisation EASA is maintaining a list of airports in areas with a high risk of contamination. The mandatory health certificate and two weeks of quarantine apply to passengers departing from airports in the mentioned countries or regions.
The following measures apply to incoming passengers from high-risk areas:
- A mandatory health certificate (as of April 17, 2020, 6:00 PM).
- Passengers are urged to quarantine for 14 days.
- An EU entry ban on all unnecessary travel of people from third countries to Europe (all EU Member States, Schengen countries and the UK) until 15 June 2020.
The government has taken these measures to limit the influx of people who may be infected with COVID-19. In addition, these measures also protect passengers and crew during the flight.
