KATHMANDU, June 19: Qatar Airways Nepal hosted a media interaction session with the Honorary Consul of Greece Mr. Bikram Pandey, and Country Manager-Mr Jayaprakash Nair to celebrate the launch of Qatar Airways’ flights to Mykonos, Greece.

At the briefing, Mr Jay Prakash Nair highlighted the award-winning airline’s expansion plans, as well as its commitment in bringing more travelers to Nepal from Greece, connecting Mykonos to its extensive global network via the award-winning Hamad International Airport (HIA) in Doha. The newly-launched seasonal service to Greece’s most popular island will operate four times per week from Doha.

The beautiful island of Mykonos is the third Greek destination in Qatar Airways’ rapidly expanding global network. Seasonal direct service to the Greek island will be operated four times weekly by an Airbus A320 until 30 September 2018.

“We are looking forward to further enhancing this relationship, connecting Mykonos to Qatar Airways’ extensive global network and helping to open up and develop these attractive destinations for business and leisure travelers from around the world.”

“This new 4 weekly flight service will without doubt offer our Greece passengers more convenience and alternate choice in addition to Athens and Thessaloniki.

Honorary Consul Mr. Bikram Pandey: “We appreciate Qatar Airways’ strong support for Greece. An airline of this stature will further boost Mykonos’s reputation as a leading tourist destination. Greece economy will certainly go up by 2020 and once again the country will flourish.

The four-times-weekly service from Doha to Mykonos will be conducted with Airbus 320 aircraft. Qatar Airways already operates a 3 daily service to Athens, and 4 weekly flights ton Thessaloniki.

Mykonos is a world–renowned cosmopolitan island and a paradise in the heart of the Cyclades. The small island is known for its picturesque views and beautiful sandy beaches.

With the launch of Mykonos, Qatar Airways increased its flights to 58 times a week from Doha’s five-star Hamad International Airport to Greece.
