On the evening of December 21st local time, the Polish government announced that British flights would be banned from entering the country from December 22.
The Polish government made the above decision due to the emergence of a new highly infectious coronavirus variant in the UK. The new ban will take effect on December 22 and will remain in effect until January 6 next year.
In addition to banning passenger flights from the United Kingdom from landing in Poland, the Polish government has also decided to extend the ban on international passenger flights that came into effect on December 8 until January 6 next year.
Poland’s current ban on international passenger flights was originally valid until December 31, prohibiting international passenger flights from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Georgia, Jordan, Armenia, Kosovo, North Macedonia, Serbia and the United States (except Illinois and New York) from landing at airports in Poland. The ban list does not include the EU, the European Economic Area and Schengen Zone countries.
