Qatar Airways will launch flights to Santorini starting June 9, 2022. The thrice-weekly service will be operated by the airline’s A320 fleet in a three-class configuration.

Santorini will be the airline’s third Greek destination, joining Athens and Mykonos. 

Qatar Airways will also restart its seasonal service to Mykonos in June 2022 with four weekly flights. Athens will also double its daily service to cater to both leisure and business customers.

Santorini is Greece’s most visited island, which, at its tourism peak in 2018, attracted almost 2 million visitors, causing the local tourism board to cap the number of tourists the following year. In September 2021, Santorini welcomed more than 97,000 visitors, exceeding pre-pandemic figures by 17,000.

“We are pleased to add Santorini to our global network in 2022, with this exciting new destination joining Athens and Mykonos to become our third gateway in this beautiful country,” Qatar Airways group chief executive Akbar Al Baker said in a statement. 

“We are committed to offering our passengers as many seamless one-stop connection choices as possible. This expansion will further solidify our relationship with Greece.”
