Qatar Airways to take off for Mykonos, Greece, this spring

Qatar Airways will launch direct flights to Mykonos, Greece starting May 30th.

The island of Mykonos will be the third Greek destination in the airline’s 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 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 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.

The airline also recently announced that it will launch non-stop flights to Thessaloniki, its second destination in Greece, from March.

The four-times weekly new service between Doha and Thessaloniki will also be operated by an Airbus A320 aircraft.
