Qatar Airways has announced that it will launch direct flights to Mykonos, Greece starting 30 May 2018.
The island of Mykonos will be the third Greek destination in the popular 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, His Excellency 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. The award-winning airline also recently announced that it will 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.
Mykonos is just one of many new routes planned by Qatar Airways for 2018, including Canberra, Australia, Thessaloniki, Greece and Cardiff, United Kingdom, among others. The award-winning airline now connects travellers to more cities in Europe than ever before, with recent launches to Kyiv, Prague, and Dublin, to name a few.
