State Aid: EC Approves €3.4 Billion Dutch Support to KLM

The European Commission has approved, under EU State aid rules, a €3.4 billion Dutch aid measure consisting of a State guarantee on loans and a subordinated State loan to KLM to provide urgent liquidity to the company in the context of the coronavirus outbreak. The measures were approved under the State aid Temporary Framework adopted by the Commission on 19 March 2020.

Executive Vice-President Margrethe Vestager, in charge of competition policy, said: “KLM plays a key role for the Dutch economy in terms of employment and air connectivity. The crisis has hit the aviation sector particularly hard. This €3.4 billion State guarantee and State loan will provide KLM with the liquidity that it urgently needs to withstand the impact of the coronavirus outbreak. The Netherlands imposed certain conditions on the aid measure with respect to profit allocation, working conditions and sustainability. Very good. Member States are free to design measures in line with their policy objectives and EU rules.”

The Dutch support measure to KLM

KLM is a major network airline operating in the Netherlands. It is part of the Air France-KLM group, in which the Dutch state holds a participation. KLM is the Netherlands' second-largest private employer with over 36,600 employees. KLM is also a very important company for the Dutch economy, as it ensures the connectivity of the Netherlands with many destinations in Europe, with the Dutch regions overseas and the rest of the world. Since the start of the coronavirus outbreak, KLM has also played an essential role in the repatriation of citizens and for the transport of medical equipment.

As a result of the imposition of travel restrictions introduced by the Netherlands and by many destination countries to limit the spread of the coronavirus, KLM has suffered a significant reduction of its services, which resulted in high operating losses.Since the gradual easing of restrictive measures, as of the beginning of June 2020, air passenger traffic is slowly recovering. KLM does not have sufficient liquidity in order to finance the ramp up of its activities. Therefore, the support from the Dutch State is essential to obtain vital liquidity to face this difficult period. The Netherlands has also demonstrated that all other potential means to obtain liquidity on the markets have already been explored and exhausted.

The Netherlands notified to the Commission, under EU State aid rules, an aid measure to KLM to enable the company to mitigate the negative consequences of the coronavirus outbreak. The measure, which has a total budget of €3.4 billion, will take the form of: (i) a State guarantee on loans provided by a consortium of banks, and (ii) a subordinated loan to the company by the Dutch State.

The Commission found that the State guarantee is in line with the conditions set out in the Temporary Framework: (i) the guarantee premium is in line with the conditions under the Temporary Framework, increasing over time to encourage early reimbursement, (ii) the guarantee will be granted before 31 December this year, (iii) the loan backed by the guarantee cannot exceed €2.4 billion and is below the limits of the Temporary Framework, (iv) the maximum duration of the guarantee is 6 years and will not cover more than 90% of the loan backed by such a guarantee, and (v) KLM was not in difficulty on or before 31 December 2019. Safeguards are in place to ensure that the advantage is entirely passed to the beneficiary.

With respect to the subordinated State loan, the Commission found that this measure is also in line with the Temporary Framework: (i) the remuneration is in line with the conditions under the Temporary Framework, increasing over time to encourage early reimbursement, (ii) the loan will be granted before 31 December this year, (iii) the amount of the loan is below the limits of the Temporary Framework, (iv) the maximum duration of the loan is 5.5 years, and (v) KLM was not in difficulty on or before 31 December 2019.

The Commission concluded that the Dutch measure will contribute to managing the economic impact of the coronavirus in the Netherlands. It is necessary, appropriate and proportionate to remedy a serious disturbance in the economy of a Member State, in line with Article 107(3)(b) TFEU and the conditions set out Temporary Framework.

On this basis, the Commission approved the measure under EU State aid rules.

3000 COVID-19 Tests per Day at Kulata Border Checkpoint, Greece Launches Website for Questions

In connection with the mass testing for coronavirus when entering Greece in recent days, according to Bulgarian embassy in Athens, there is currently no document that makes it mandatory to take samples for COVID-19 from all citizens passing through the border checkpoint "Kulata-Promahon ", Announced by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

According to our mission, after talks with the General Secretariat for Civil Protection of the Hellenic Republic, testing for COVID-19 of citizens crossing from Bulgaria to Greece is still not mandatory, but on a selective basis based on the contained in the completed electronic form information. The aim of the Greek authorities at the Kulata-Promahon border checkpoint is to carry out the maximum number of tests every day, which to date is fixed at 3,000 tests. This means that if the number of passengers for a particular day is within 3000, everyone will be tested. If this number is exceeded, not all citizens are tested.

Passengers who have been sampled for COVID-19 at the Kulata-Promahon border checkpoint are instructed to isolate themselves at the address indicated by them on the form for 48 hours. If the test is positive, they will be found at this address by the Greek health authorities for mandatory 14-day quarantine. The Greek State shall bear the costs of staying in a quarantined place, as well as the costs of medical care and hospital treatment, if necessary.

The Bulgarian Embassy in Athens has received assurances from the General Secretariat for Civil Protection of the Hellenic Republic that if Bulgarian citizens with a positive COVID-19 test wish to return to Bulgaria instead of spending the 14-day quarantine period in Greece, they will be allowed to leave immediately without stopping on the territory of Greece until they reach the border. Our advice is that upon arrival on the territory of the Republic of Bulgaria they should immediately inform the relevant Bulgarian authorities about the positive test for COVID-19 given by them.

Due to the expected heavy traffic during the upcoming weekend at the Kulata-Promahon border checkpoint, we recommend that Bulgarian citizens who plan to travel to Greece prepare in advance for a possible long wait.

We advise all to carefully read the answers to all questions that may arise before traveling to Greece, on a specially created site: GreeceHealthFirst

There you will find answers to many questions, arranged in the following sections:

1. Can I and how to travel to Greece - by land, air and sea, respectively?

2. Security during your stay in Greece - accommodation, meals, culture and entertainment.

3. What should I do during my stay in Greece in case:

- I have symptoms of COVID-19;

- I have been in contact with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19;

- in case I am quarantined, who will cover the costs.

4. Passenger Localization Form (PLF), the preliminary completion and receipt of a QR code which is mandatory.

Greece Closes its Borders to Serbian Citizens Until July 15

In response to the rapid increase of coronavirus cases in neighbouring Serbia, Greece has closed its borders to Serbian citizens from all points of entry until July 15, 2020.

According to Deputy Government Spokesman Aristotleia Peloni, “the government, in cooperation with experts, is closely monitoring and will continue to do so on a daily basis, the development of epidemiological circles in the European Union and in the rest of the world.”

The only exception is for essential reasons.

“The government in cooperation with the responsible services is analysing and evaluating in order for the opening to foreign visitors to Greece to be held without discounts to the public health,” she added.

The reaction of the Serbian government

Serbian Foreign Minister Ivica Dačić told the Tanjug news agency that from 6am on Monday, Greece will close its borders to Serbia.

“The office of Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis has informed the Serbian embassy in Athens that Greece will close its borders to Serbian citizens from tomorrow except for exceptional cases where there will be a special permit,” Dačić told the Serbian news agency.

The Serbian Foreign Minister called on the citizens who planned to travel to Greece not to do so in order not to suffer.

Trade and Tourism Minister Rasim Ljajić told N1 television network that “Greece is closing its borders due to the epidemiological situation in Serbia and given that many Serbian tourists were positive with coronavirus.”
