VIENNA: Austria on Tuesday said it was suspending passenger flights from most Balkan countries, Moldova and Egypt to lower the risk of travellers infected with coronavirus entering the country. The measure will take effect from Thursday, the Health Ministry said.
The new ban covers arrivals from Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Romania, Moldova and Egypt. Flight bans will remain in place for Belarus, Britain, China, Iran, Portugal, Russia, Sweden and Ukraine. (DPA)
