Mayor Eric Adams travels to Greece, Qatar next week

Mayor Eric Adams, chief executive of the Big Apple’s jet set, is traveling to Athens, Greece, for a conference on anti-Semitism, and to Doha, Qatar, to “learn more” about co-hosting the World Cup.

According to a copy of Adams’ public schedule released on Friday, Hizzoner will travel to Athens on November 30 to attend the 2022 Mayors’ Summit on Antisemitism.

The trip comes shortly after the NYPD and federal police thwart an attempted attack on city synagogues by would-be terrorists Matthew Mahrer and Christopher Brown.

Adams will then travel to Doha, Qatar on December 1 and stay there until December 4 – to learn “more” about the FIFA World Cup 2022 matches.

New York and New Jersey have been selected to co-host the 2026 World Cup at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ.

Qatar has come under intense scrutiny during this year’s tournament – as allegations of human rights abuses, alleged corruption related to the country’s bid to host the competition and the country’s homophobic laws.

Adam’s schedule calls for the mayor to meet with government officials, security and economic development leaders.

When asked by The Post for more details on the meetings or whether the trip will be funded by the taxpayer, the campaign or personally, City Hall said final details were still being worked out.

Flights from New York to Athens, then to Doha and round-trip based on the prices listed online would amount to just over $2,000.

Adams has made a number of trips abroad and abroad since taking office — most recently attending the Somos political conference in San Juan, Puerto Rico, following November’s general election.

He came under fire in May after taking a three-day trip to Los Angeles, after which he defended the decision, arguing he was working to lure the business back to the Big Apple.

During the getaway, he also attended a private dinner at the San Vincente Bungalows set up by CAA agent Cade Hudson as part of a star-studded invitee list that included Paris Hilton, Kate Hudson and her mother Goldie Hawn, and Casey Affleck. Mayor Eric Adams travels to Greece, Qatar next week
