Annual report
2019

28 million customers a year. And we offer individual holiday moments to every one of them. How do we do it?

With the latest technology we work ceaselessly on becoming better and more interesting for our customers, and at the same time more efficient. For our guests, the journey is even more relaxed and enjoyable.

Online and offline blend seamlessly – and the most precious time of the year becomes an unforgettable experience. Our perfect customer journey.

We take the responsibility and weigh up decisions carefully in advance. Making travel as sustainable as can be.

We are merging the digital and analogue worlds into one experience. Front of stage and behind the scenes. This way we tap into new markets and personalise travel in new ways to fulfil even more dreams. Because a holiday from TUI is a pledge to give great quality and outstanding service. Every unique moment.

»TUI’s strategy change launched more than five years ago marked the successful shift to an integrated tourism provider. The transformation of the Group is consistently advancing, as today’s business model will not guarantee tomorrow’s success. For TUI, the future is digital«
