So far no Repatriation Flights from Greece to Finland
There are currently no plans for a direct repatriation flight from Greece to Finland organised by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs. The Embassy made an enquiry and less than 20 people are interested in direct flights only. The number of passengers affects the possibility of carrying out the flight and the price of the ticket, as the flights are organized in cooperation with commercial airlines.
