Qatar Airways is adding an extra weekly service on its seasonal Mykonos route when flights resume to the Greek island in May next year.
Mykonos is one of Greece’s most popular island resorts and became Qatar Airways’ third Greek destination when it launched in May 2018, just two months after the introduction of the airline’s Thessaloniki service in March.
The increased five-times-weekly seasonal service will be operated every Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday from 22 May–29 September 2019.
This month, Mykonos-based luxury hotelier Myconian Collection heaped praise on Qatar Airways for its one-stop route (via Doha) from Australia to the Greek Island, which has seen Australian visitor numbers surge.
The oneworld member carrier is also adding new additional frequencies on other seasonal services to Antalya, Bodrum and Málaga. As well as upgrading from the A320 aircraft to the larger A330 on all flights to Antalya, Qatar Airways is moving to the more spacious Boeing 777, replacing the Boeing 787 Dreamliner on all Málaga services.
“The passenger demand for the return of non-stop services to these top tourist hot spots has been very high, so we are thrilled to respond by not only resuming these routes for summer 2019, but also by adding an extra weekly flight to the Antalya, Bodrum and Mykonos schedules,” said Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker.
The four-times-weekly seasonal service to Málaga will be operated by a Boeing 777 every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday from 29 May–29 September 2019.
The increased three-times-weekly seasonal service to Antalya will be operated every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday from 24 May–29 September 2019, with the three-times-weekly seasonal service to Bodrum operating every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 25 May–28 September 2019.
