“We expect a strong summer 2022. The path out of the pandemic is becoming increasingly clear. Demand for travel is high across all markets,” said TUI CEO Fritz Joussen.
“TUI has used the time to transform: we are leaner and more efficient today and are becoming more profitable than before the crisis.”
The company says it will soon start returning about €700 million in state aid.
It says there is a ‘very strong booking dynamic’ for summer 2022.
It sees a trend towards short-term bookings but confidence is increasing and holiday bookings are picking up.
