Reuters: Greek airline Sky Express partners with Qatar Airways

Greek airline Sky Express said on Thursday it had signed an agreement with Qatar Airways to cooperate on flights connecting Doha with the Greek islands, in a boost to the country’s key tourism industry, Reuters reports.

The privately owned carrier, which competes with Aegean Airlines’ subsidiary Olympic Airways on domestic routes, flies to 24 Greek destinations, including the popular islands of Corfu, Santorini and Crete on ATR42 and ATR72 twin engine turboprop aircraft.

Qatar Airways, the country’s flagship airline, has been flying to Athens since 2005 and last year it added flights to Thessaloniki and Mykonos.
