Suspended flights to and from the EU after midnight

Flights to and from the European Union will be suspended starting at midnight on Thursday, António Costa announced at a press conference after Tuesday’s European Council meeting via videoconference.

However, there are exceptions in the case of Portugal, as the head of Government insisted. These exceptions are air connections to countries with significant Portuguese communities, such as the United States, Canada, Venezuela and South Africa, and CPLP countries.

Regarding the CPLP countries, the Prime Minister revealed that the routes to Brazil will be restricted, with the exception of the routes that connect Lisbon to Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo.

Despite this measure to suspend flights to and from the European Union, António Costa stressed that during the meeting the member states of the European Union all reaffirmed the principle of freedom of movement and added that it was agreed that unilateral decisions would not be taken regarding the border control.

In Portugal, 448 cases of Covid-19 have been registered so far. Two people died and three have recovered from the disease.
