Qatar Airways has announced the return of its recently introduced seasonal routes to Antalya, Bodrum, Mykonos and Málaga, with added flights and upgraded aircraft on two routes from May 2019.
The carrier will add an extra weekly flight to the Antalya, Bodrum and Mykonos routes from May 2019, as well as upgrading from the A320 aircraft to the larger A330 on all flights to Antalya, with the more spacious Boeing 777 replacing the Boeing 787 Dreamliner on all Málaga services.
All four routes to the hugely popular tourist destinations of Antalya and Bodrum in Turkey, Mykonos in Greece and Málaga in Spain have shown a consistently strong performance in the four months since being launched in June this year.
Chief executive, Qatar Airways Group, HE Akbar Al Baker declared: “We are delighted with the exceptionally strong performance of these seasonal routes in the four months since they were introduced. The passenger demand for the return of non-stop services to these top tourist hot spots has been very high, so we are thrilled to respond by not only resuming these routes for summer 2019, but also adding an extra weekly flight to the Antalya, Bodrum and Mykonos schedules.
“We are also pleased to have the opportunity to show our commitment to providing passenger-preferred aircraft on our routes, with the introduction of the larger A330 on the Antalya service and the more spacious and efficient Boeing 777 for Málaga,” he added.
The four-times-weekly seasonal service to Málaga will be operated by a Boeing 777 every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday from May 29 to September 29, 2019.
Meanwhile, the increased three-times-weekly seasonal service to Antalya will be operated every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday from May 24 to September 29, 2019, with the three-times-weekly seasonal service to Bodrum operating every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from May 25 to September 28, 2019.
