Qatar Airways has unveiled plans to launch
direct flights to Mykonos, Greece on 30 May 2018.
The beautiful island of Mykonos 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, one of the Cyclades islands in
the Aegean Sea, is famous for its white buildings set against
stunning turquoise waters. With its cosmopolitan and vibrant
atmosphere, Mykonos is also an ideal starting point from which to
begin an island-hopping Greek summer holiday.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Mr.
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
holidaymakers 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.
Qatar Airways will also launch non-stop flights 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.
