The decision of the Council of Ministers was announced after yesterday's meeting of the House by the Minister of Transport Giannis Karousos, noting that the action plan for the smooth conduct of flights and the operation of airports, was submitted to the Ministry by his ministry, following a decision of the Interministerial Committee set up to evaluate the measures in force in the light of the epidemiological data of the period.
