Qatar Airways’ passengers will benefit from access to 24 exciting new destinations in Greece including Santorini, Crete, Corfu and many other destinations on Sky Express’s domestic network.

Qatar Airways Group chief executive, Akbar Al Baker, said: “With the largest domestic network in Greece, this agreement with Sky Express significantly increases our ability to connect global travellers with iconic destinations throughout Greece and reinforces our commitment to supporting the nation’s tourism industry.”

Sky Express CEO and President, Theodoros Krokidas, said: “Sky Express is very pleased for this new collaboration with such a well-respected carrier as Qatar Airways. This agreement allows all 32 Greek destinations operated by Sky Express to connect seamlessly with Qatar Airways’ global network across Europe, Asia, Australia and Africa.  This way opening up new commercial opportunities, thus offering passengers a whole new range of destinations.”

Qatar Airways has been operating to Athens since June 2005, and in 2015 increased its service to the Greek capital from twice daily to three times daily to meet growing demand. In 2018, the airline added Thessaloniki and Mykonos as its second and third gateways to the idyllic Mediterranean nation.
