The landing bans for risk countries imposed in the corona crisis end on Friday. The AUA is now adding 15 more destinations to its flight schedule.
Flights from Egypt, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Romania, Serbia as well as Great Britain, Sweden and Ukraine were not allowed to land in the corona crisis until Friday. However, the AUA can now include these destinations in its summer flight schedule – taking into account the new travel regulation of the Austrian government.
From now on, the AUA will take off again to Bucharest, Chicago, Pristina and Sarajevo. Saturday the jets take off to Belgrade, Cairo, Kiev, London, Podgorica, Sibiu, Skopje, Sofia, Stockholm, Tirana and Varna. But there are precautions waiting for passengers to take.
