What is TUI AG?
TUI AG originated as an industrial mining and transportation company called Preussag AG in Hanover, Germany. Through an acquisition of Hapag-Lloyd in 1997 the company entered the tourism industry and has grown to become the largest leisure, travel and tourism company in the world.
Today TUI operates a portfolio which includes industry-leading tour operators and online booking portals; five airlines with more than 150 aircraft; more than 400 hotels and 17 cruise lines; and a wide array of other tourism-related companies. Strategic acquisitions of large tour companies such as Thomson, Fritidsresor and Nouvelles Frontières, as well as hotel chains RIU and MagicLife, have allowed the company to fully integrate its operations. Through its subsidiaries, TUI encompasses the entirety of the tourism value chain and has served over 27 million customers.
TUI employs more than 70,000 employees and places a high value on operating sustainably in terms of the economy, the environment and social welfare. The coronavirus pandemic of 2020 has shocked the tourism industry and TUI has been forced to furlough many staff.
