(CNN) - Italy will start reopening all its airports starting June 3, Transport Minister Paola de Micheli announced on Wednesday during a parliamentary session.

"It will be possible to proceed to the reopening of all airports starting from June 3, when transfers are again permitted," the minister said.

De Micheli added that current interregional and international limitations will also end for public transport within the country.

Flights were suspended in all major Italian airports on March 14, except for essential flights. Rome's Ciampino and Florence's airports were allowed to reopen on May 4, but the Milan hub remained closed due to the lack of air traffic, the minister said.
