Passengers on a private jet coming from Colorado US were denied entry to the country at a customs check at Elmas airport in Cagliari, Italy.
The remaining five passengers were from Italy, New Zealand, and England. They could have stayed in Sardinia, following a mandatory quarantine for 14 days before being allowed to move freely.
Sardinia’s governor spoke on the matter: “The region of Sardinia has no responsibility for what happened. Immediately, with the collaboration of the airport management company, we set to work – initiating urgent talks with the government, the Ministry, and the Prefect – to find a solution that would allow American passengers to stay in Sardinia, even by submitting to quarantine,”.
