Delta Airlines will resume flying to Athens from John F. Kennedy Airport in New York City in July but will only operate one of its two daily flights.
The airline plans to resume a single daily flight to Athens on July 2.
Prior to the Coronavirus pandemic, Delta operated two daily seasonal flights to the Greek capital between May and October.
As it stands now, with schedules being changed by carriers almost daily to accommodate changing international restrictions, Delta joins Air Canada, American Airlines and Emirates, which will be flying non-stop to Athens from various destinations in North America.
Air Canada will resume service to Athens from Toronto and Montreal in June, while American Airlines will begin its Chicago to Athens non-stop service in July.
Emirates also announced it will resume service between Newark Liberty International Airport to Athens in July.
Several European carriers offer connecting flights to Athens from cities throughout North America, including Lufthansa, Swiss and KLM/Air France.
According to an interview with Peter Vlitas, Senior Vice President of Travel Leaders, a major U.S. travel company, incoming visitors to Greece will be required to have a COVID-19 test with a negative result done in the origin city no more than 72 hours prior to arrival in Athens.
