Qatar Airways is set to launch flights between Athens and New York next year, according to reports in the Greek media.

Daily newspaper Kathimerini reports that the carrier’s CEO Akbar Al Baker announced plans for the new route at a press conference in Athens, celebrating eight years of service from Doha to the Greek capital.

There is no official confirmation of the route on the Qatar Airways website, and Business Traveller has contacted the airline for more information, but it looks likely the service will operate on a Doha-Athens-New York routing, making use of fifth freedom rights.

US carrier Delta currently operates summer seasonal flights from New York to Athens, between May and October.
