Tui unifies five aeronautical divisions in a single Group
Previous management entailed high economic costs
Tui, a German Group active in the tourism sector, has decided to unify its management in a more logical way. The latest move was to unify the five aeronautical companies with which it usually operates and collaborates. The name "Tui" is shared with the parent company, despite the fact that they are actually different companies, with fleets that have nothing in common, as well as maintenance, procedures and contracts.
The situation that has been managed up to now has involved considerable economic costs and it was therefore preferred to change. On the other hand, the coronavirus pandemic does not offer many alternatives and we need to decide in this way.
The unified companies are Tui Airways, Tui Fly, Tui Fly Belgium, Tui Fly Netherlands and Tui Fly Nordic, with a clear reference to their geographical areas of competence. Tui has been providing for this part for some time precisely to downsize the fleet, so much so that in the short term there will be a total of 150 aircraft to manage. The five operational certificates of the aforementioned divisions will be maintained, while the new unified Group that will be formed will be led by the managing director of the German branch, Oliver Lackmann. Last June, the parent company lashed out decisively against the United Kingdom and the restrictions imposed on air connections.
In particular, CEO Andrew Flintham blamed London for having adopted the decisions in an "opaque" way, making it impossible for passengers to book their stays, without forgetting the difficulties of companies and airports.
