Greece prepares for a GCC summer


The Greek National Tourism Organisation (GNTO) has partnered with Qatar Airways to promote new direct routes to Greece as part of its ongoing commitment to offering seamless connectivity for passengers. It has also inked an exclusive deal with Wego.

The popular Greek island of Santorini, with one of the most famous views in the world, will join high-demand flights to Athens and Mykonos to become the third destination to be served in Greece by Qatar Airways.

The GNTO has also inked an exclusive deal with one of the most influential online travel agents in the Middle East as part of its comprehensive approach to further build on the destination’s enduring appeal to GCC travellers.  

In line with the GNTO’s ‘All You Want Is Greece’ campaign message, the multi-platform campaign will run from June until August and will target families, couples and travellers seeking unique travel experiences and high-quality services, by creating heightened demand and desire to travel over the key summer period by highlighting Greece as a destination with a unique identity, heritage, and unparalleled natural landscape. 

All travellers have been entering Greece restriction-free from May 1, 2022. The country has also lifted the remaining of its domestic Covid-19 measures, meaning that travellers can now access cafes, bars, restaurants, and other public places and venues without being required to show evidence vaccination and/or a valid PCR test.
