According to Gulf Air’s Chief Executive Office Krešimir Kučko, Mykonos will be a great boutique seasonal summer destination in Greece catering to the growing demand to experience the beautiful island and its luxurious resorts during the summer holiday.
The new route is part of the carrier’s boutique strategy, announced earlier this year, to add premium leisure destinations to its network.
“The focus of our new strategy is primarily on the premium segment of travel and passengers, so we are focusing on premium leisure, millennials and premium business. In line with this is of course Mykonos as a premium leisure destination,” Kučko told GTP Headlines on the sidelines of the event.
Mykonos will be Gulf Air’s second destination in Greece after Athens.
“Athens has been doing well for many years and we expect the same for Mykonos… We will see if the loads will be above expectations and then we can also consider a direct connection. But at the moment it will be Bahrain-Mykonos-Athens-Bahrain three times a week,” he added.
Present at the announcement was Michael Flerianos, the general director of Gold Star Aviation, the GSA (General Sales Agent) of Gulf Air for Greece.
