According to Fritz Joussen, CEO, TUI Group, the good earnings growth of 26 percent in H1 is driven by the continued strong demand for our holiday experiences.
TUI hotel brands such as RIU, Robinson and TUI Blue, and in particular TUI Cruises Mein Schiff’s fleet, are setting standards around the globe.
At the same time, Joussen mentioned that German and European holidaymakers are beginning to embrace this way to travel. Due to demographic change, traditional target groups are growing.
Additionally, new vessels will be delivered to TUI Group’s cruise subsidiaries this year, 2019 and 2023 in order to further expand their market position.
“At growth of 26 percent in our operating result and seven per cent in turnover, TUI Group concludes the first half of financial year with a very strong set of results, and we reiterate our full-year guidance,” added Joussen.
