Qatar Airways announced Sunday that it will launch direct flights to the Greek island of Mykonos, beginning on May 30, 2018. The cosmopolitan island will be the third Greek destination in the airline’s rapidly expanding global network, following the launch of direct service to Thessaloniki in March 2018.
Mykonos has become a favorite destination for wealthy residents of the Gulf States and the new flight is certain to increase the island’s visibility there.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker, said: “Mykonos has long been one of our most sought-after European destinations, and we are very proud to be the first Gulf carrier to serve Mykonos directly. The island’s central location among the Cyclades makes it an extremely attractive holiday destination. We look forward to offering holiday makers the convenience of direct service to this enchanting island this summer”.
Four weekly seasonal flights to Mykonos Island National Airport will be operated by an Airbus A320, featuring 12 seats in Business Class and 132 seats in Economy Class.
The airline also recently announced that it will launch non-stop flights from its base in Doha to Thessaloniki, its second destination in Greece, from March 2018.
The four-times weekly new service between Doha and Thessaloniki will also be operated by an Airbus A320 aircraft, featuring 12 seats in Business Class and 132 seats in Economy Class. Qatar Airways also offers three daily flights to Athens.
