Qatar Airways launched flights to Thessaloniki, Greece’s second-largest city. The airline’s Airbus A320 was welcomed with a traditional water cannon salute, followed by a welcome ceremony for VIP delegates.
The new four-times-weekly service from Doha to the airline’s second gateway in Greece commenced just one month ahead of the launch of its third destination in Greece, the beautiful island of Mykonos.
The VIP delegation on board the flight, led by Qatar Airways Group representative, Captain Jassim Al-Haroon, Vice President Operations Amiri Flight, included H.E. Mr. Constantinos Orphanides, Ambassador of the Hellenic Republic in State of Qatar, and was welcomed by H.E.
