TUI Travel: “Whilst the volcanic ash cloud caused unprecedented disruption in April, booking volumes have improved in May and our customers continue to place great value on their main summer holiday … despite the impact of the disruption, I expect positive momentum in the second half of the year as strong underlying demand improves trading and merger synergies continue to be delivered. Excluding the impact from the volcanic ash disruption, I remain confident that we can meet the Board’s original expectations for 2010,” Peter Long, CEO. Source: TUI Travel, 11-May-2010.
