PM Netanyahu: Target date for opening of skies to flights is August 1

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says Israel is looking to open up to Greek and Cypriot visitors starting August 1.

The date is later than the July 1 target that has been bandied about, and the list of countries whose citizens would be allowed in is also smaller than a larger roster initially suggested in reports.

“This all depends on the coronavirus pandemic, but if the numbers allow is this is the target date for opening up the skies,” Netanyahu says at a press availability alongside visiting Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, who is in Israel for a single day series of G2G meetings.
