Qatar Airways hosts press conference in Canberra

The award-winning airline also recently announced that it will launch non-stop flights to Thessaloniki, its second destination in Greece, from March 2018.

Mykonos is just one of many new routes planned by Qatar Airways for 2018, including Canberra, Australia, Thessaloniki, Greece and Cardiff, U.K., among others.

Flight QR906 is scheduled to depart from Doha (DOH) at 07:55 and arrive in Sydney (SYD) at 06:25 +1. It also means more maintenance of its jets is needed.

Qatar Airways become the second airline to serve Canberra's fledgling global market when it commenced service on 12-Feb-2018. Flight QR906 will depart Sydney to Canberra (CBR) at 07:25 to arrive at 08:35.

Qatar Airways is only the second airline to operate regular global flights in and out of Canberra, along with Singapore Airlines.

Onboard the inaugural Qatar Airways flight to Canberra, Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, was joined by the Australian Ambassador to the State of Qatar, His Excellency Mr. Axel Wabenhorst. An airline of this stature will further boost Canberra's reputation as a leading tourist destination, on the back of record numbers of worldwide visitors coming in 2017, and Lonely Planet nominating the city as a top three destination for 2018. During the meetings, the new flight to Canberra as well as the airline's ongoing commitment to growth in Australia were discussed. From Doha they can connect with nonstop services to Europe and North America.

Canberra, Australia's largest inland city, is home to Australia's Parliament House, and offers a host of museums, galleries and monuments for visitors to explore.

With the airline launching a new daily service to Canberra, the airline flies to five destinations in Australia. Its Quick Ramp Transfer (QRT) offers the fastest shipment transfer at Hamad International Airport and the use of reefer vehicles at its hub ensures seamless temperature control for perishable products.

Four weekly seasonal flights to Mykonos International Airport will be operated by an Airbus A320, featuring 12 business class seats and 132 economy class seats.
