Airline Group


TUI Group (TUI AG) is a multinational travel and tourism group based in Hannover, Germany. TUI operate airlines, cruise ships, hotels, travel agencies and retail stores. In Jun-2014, TUI AG announced it would merge completely with TUI Travel PLC (formally known as First Choice and 55% owned by TUI AG) creating a single unified company. The merger was finalised on 17-Dec-2014. The group's six subsidiary carriers operate as one 'virtual airline', with all activities consolidated under its 'aviation - mainstream' division. TUI is dual listed on both the London (LSE: TUI) and Frankfurt (FSE: TUI1) stock exchanges.

TUI Group's subsidiary airlines include:

  • TUIfly (formerly Hapag-Lloyd Flug, since 1997)
  • TUIfly Nordic AB (since 2000)
  • TUI Airways Ltd (formerly known as Thomson Airways, since 2000)
  • Corsair (since 2000)
  • TUI Airlines Belgium d/b/a TUI (since Nov-2003)
  • TUI Airlines Netherlands (since Sep-2005)

In 2016, TUI Group agreed to contribute its German leisure airline subsidiary TUIfly GmbH to a JV with Etihad Airways. Etihad were in negotiations with airberlin to acquire its touristic operations primarily in Southern Europe and North Africa, including its participation in NIKI, with the objective to contribute it to a JV tentatively named "Blue Sky". The new airline JV was expected to serve a broad route network with its two airlines, TUIfly and NIKI, a total fleet of around 60 aircraft and a seat capacity of 15 million seats p/a, operating from key departure airports in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. TUI AG and Etihad terminated negotiations over the proposed JV on 08-Jun-2017, citing NIKI is no longer a participant.
