Qatar Airways has resumed regular flights between Doha and Mykonos today. This marks the beginning of a new travel bubble between Qatar and Greece where fully vaccinated holidaymakers will not quarantine on arrival any longer.
His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker the Chief Executive Qatar Airways Group said that, the agreement between Qatar and Mykonos is hopefully the start of a strong recovery for leisure travel. “Just under three years since they first launched flights between Doha and Mykonos and despite the huge impact the pandemic has had on leisure travel, this important agreement between Qatar and Greece is hopefully the start of a strong recovery for leisure travel”.
He further said that, Greece is an important market for us and the Mykonos route was hugely popular following its launch in May 2018. We look forward to a resurgence in that popularity over the coming months.
Qatar Airways has maintained the route to the Greek capital city Athens throughout the pandemic and the daily service is currently operated by a Boeing 787 aircraft. The Mykonos route is serviced by an A320 aircraft with 12 lie-flat seats in business and 120 seats in economy.
Qatar Airways Holidays offers quarantine-free holiday packages to Mykonos, starting at QAR 4,410 for three nights and available for travel between 14 May and 30 September.
Qatar Airways recently became the first global airline in the world to achieve the prestigious 5-Star COVID-19 Airline Safety Rating by international air transport rating organisation, Skytrax.
This recognition provides assurance to passengers across the world that airline health and safety standards are subject to the highest possible standards of professional, independent scrutiny and assessment.
