Ferry routes re-opened to Kefalonia this evening now winds have dropped back.
Update 19:00 local time
The state of coastal shipping is gradually being normalized, as, according to the NMS, from late afternoon, the winds blowing in the sea are weakening. The prohibitive detention was imposed due to strong southwest winds from 8 to 9 beaufort and in the northern Aegean 10.
Starting from 15.00, the ferry services from Piraeus will normally take place, while from Rafina the first route will take place at 17.30, as the RES – MPE transmits.
Only by conventional-type ferry boats will the Argosaronikos operate, while from the port of Lavrion, there will be no afternoon sailings for Kea.
The lines Rio – Antirrio, Kyllini – Zakynthos, Killini – Kefalonia, Agia Marina – Nea Styra, Kavala – Prinos and Alexandroupolis – Samothraki remain closed.
In any case, passengers are called before traveling today to communicate with the local port authorities and travel agencies for any cancellations or changes to the itineraries.
