Posted 16 January 2018 · Add Comment

Qatar is the first airline to ever fly the state-of-the-art Airbus A350 to Greece.

The airline temporarily upgraded its current triple-daily service to Athens to an ultra-modern A350 on Monday, with the arrival of the flight greeted by a water canon salute at Athens International Airport. 

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Akbar Al Baker, said: “We are extremely proud to be the first airline to fly the Airbus A350 to Greece. Athens is a key destination on our European network, and we are delighted to be able to provide our passengers travelling to Greece today with the ultimate comfort and services on board one of the most technologically advanced aircraft in the sky. We will have more good news for the Greek market later this year with the upcoming launch of direct services to Thessaloniki, offering our passengers even more opportunity to explore this majestic country.”
