Qatar Airways to resume flights to Mykonos

Qatar Airways is set to resume flights to and from Mykonos three times a week after suspending services last summer.

From 14 May, on Monday, Friday and Saturday, the airline will fly an A320 aircraft out of Doha and Mykonos during the summer season.

The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic means Qatar Airways is currently slowly rebuilding its 130-country network.

Qatar Airways Group chief executive Akbar Al Baker said: “We first started flying to Mykonos in May 2018 and the route proved very popular with our customers.

“Due to the global pandemic, we had to suspend services last summer, so we are really delighted to be returning helping support Greece’s efforts to restart tourism.”

Harry Theoharis, the Greek Minister for tourism, welcomed the carrier’s decision. He said: “It’s very pleasing for us to have our luxury destination included in the planning of the airline’s new summer programme.

“In this difficult time, this development comes when all of our efforts have been put into the safe opening of Greek tourism.”

The airline is planning to use a modern A320 aircraft with 12 seats in Business Class and 120 seats in Economy Class.
