No Covid-19 infections in direct UK flights, two in transit

Coronavirus tests that were conducted on travellers who arrived in Greece from the United Kingdom two days after direct flights were allowed from the country came back negative, but two passengers from London who transited in EU airports were positive.

Health authorities conducted 1,366 tests on July 15 and 1,437 tests on July 17 on passengers who arrived from several UK cities, including Birmingham and Manchester.

The two travellers who arrived from London through Paris and Larnaca tested positive have been isolated and authorities have traced their contacts.

Health teams will continue to mass-test UK arrivals and will announce the results in the coming days.

Passport Office chaos forces families to cancel holidays

Families have been forced to cancel holidays because of delays of up to four months to process their passport applications, an investigation by The Telegraph has found.

The passport office’s premium fast-track service and face-to-face interviews required for first passports are suspended as it struggles to get its 2,000 staff back to work in their offices while maintaining social distancing.

Unconfirmed but heard these airlines will not now be operating to Kefalonia this summer:

Austrian
Norwegian Air Shuttle
Iberia Express
Vueling
Blue Panorama

They may not have brought vast numbers in but will be missed.
