Set against the crystal blue backdrop of the Aegean Sea, the cosmopolitan island of 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 to Mykonos for 2019 will be operated every Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday from May 22 until September 29, 2019.
In addition, Qatar Airways also announced the return of its seasonal routes to Antalya, Bodrum and Málaga from May 2019.
The award-winning airline will add an extra weekly flight to the Antalya and Bodrum routes from May 2019, as well as upgrading from the A320 aircraft to the larger A330 on all flights to Antalya, with the more spacious Boeing 777 replacing the Boeing 787 Dreamliner on all Málaga services.
According to the airline, all four routes to the hugely popular tourist destinations of Antalya and Bodrum in Turkey, Mykonos, Greece, and Málaga, Spain, have shown a consistently strong performance in the four months since being launched in June this year.
“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,” Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker said.
The four-times-weekly seasonal service to Málaga will be operated by a Boeing 777 every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday from May 29 until September 29, 2019.
Moreover, the increased three-times-weekly seasonal service to Antalya will be operated every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday from May 24 until September 29, 2019.; with the three-times-weekly seasonal service to Bodrum operating every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from May 25 until September 28, 2019.
One of the world’s fastest-growing airlines, Qatar Airways boasts a modern fleet of more than 200 aircraft flying to business and leisure destinations across six continents.
