TUI wants to significantly expand its business again after huge losses during the COVID-19 pandemic when the company reduced its staff in Germany by roughly 1250. The German TUI group is running 1600 travel agencies, a number of online portals, five airlines with around 150 aircrafts, over 400 hotels, 16 cruise ships, and destination agencies in all major holiday countries around the world.
