Some flights that had been planned to these countries therefore had to be cancelled, after airlines had begun selling tickets in the last few days.
Last week, the government announced plans to reopen Poland’s EU borders at the weekend, and to permit international flights to other EU countries (as well as the UK) from this week, more than three months after flights were suspended and non-resident foreigners banned from entering Poland.
Certain airlines, including Wizzair, have been selling tickets for flights beginning today, Wednesday 17 June, although others, such as Ryanair, were more circumspect, planning a return from 1 July, according to TVN24.
But the government ordinance giving the green light for the resumption of flights – published at 8.38 p.m. yesterday evening, according to Gazeta.pl, and valid until 30 June – included several notable exceptions. ■
