The Polish government has extended a ban on international flights to nine countries until December 31, 2020, owing to the coronavirus pandemic.

The ban prohibits the landing of international passenger flights at Polish airports from airports in nine countries.

The list covers: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Georgia, Jordan, Armenia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Serbia and the United States, excluding the states of Illinois and New York.

According to the decree, the ban will not apply to airports located in EU member states, the area of the European Free Trade Agreement (EFTA), as well as passport-free Schengen Zone countries.
