Qatar Airways to start seasonal service to Santorini, Greece and Dubrovnik, Croatia in 2020

The Doha based mega-carrier Qatar Airways has confirmed two new exciting Mediterranean destinations for its ever-expanding network -  Santorini in Greece and Dubrovnik in Croatia.  

The airline will be the first Gulf carrier to begin direct flights to Santorini, its fourth destination in Greece after Athens, Mykonos and Thessaloniki, with services to begin on 20 May 2020. Flights to Dubrovnik, Croatia, the airline’s second destination in Croatia after Zagreb will start on 20 April 2020. 

Qatar will also add 66 weekly frequencies to 20 existing destinations in its network due to strong market demand and the recent deliveries of more fuel-efficient aircraft.  Earlier this month the carrier started flights to Gaborone, Botswana that marked the ninth new destination launched by the airline in 2019. It also recently confirmed it would be heading back to Osaka, Japan from April 6th, 2020. 




Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr Akbar Al Baker, said: “We are pleased to announce Santorini, Greece and Dubrovnik, Croatia will be joining our global network in 2020. We are committed to offering our passengers as many seamless one-stop connection choices as possible. With the addition of these new routes, our network will expand to 170 passenger destinations, further consolidating our position as one of the world’s most connected airlines."      The seasonal flights to Santorini, Greece and Dubrovnik, Croatia will be operated by an Airbus A320, featuring 12 seats in Business Class and 132 seats in Economy Class.
