Qatar Airways has confirmed it will launch direct scheduled flights from Athens to New York from the middle of 2013.  

As reported last week (click here), the airline will capitalise on fifth freedom rights on the new route, dovetailing with its Doha-Athens flights, which the airline claims is the premier intercontinental passenger route through the Greek capital. However, precise details of timings, schedules and aircraft type have yet to be uploaded into the airline's booking system.

Qatar started flights to Athens in 2004, increased them to double daily three years ago and continues to report strong demand, despite the Greek financial crisis.

Flights to Warsaw will begin on Wednesday, while Gassim (January 7), Najaf (January 23), Phnom Penh (February 20), Chicago (April 10) and Salalah (May 22) are among the new destinations in next year's schedule.
