Bookings for summer trips are gradually picking up at the German travel group Tui.
The booking numbers were unchanged at an "encouraging" level of 2,8 million guests, Tui announced today before the Annual General Meeting. However, that is still 60 percent less than in the pre-crisis year 2019. The world's largest travel operator therefore cut the capacity planned for the summer to 75 from 80 percent from July onwards.

CoV vaccinations and tests would give reason for optimism. “The increasing interest in holidays in the summer season is evident on all sales channels. There is demand from customers, people want to travel, "said the group, which was hard hit by the coronavirus crisis.
