Growth strategy

Having established a healthy financial footing for the Group over the last 18 months, we are now launching the next phase of oneTUI. In the next few years we intend to expand our portfolio by altogether 60 new hotels and four new ships. This growth strategy will still be governed by the underlying principles of oneTUI: cash flow orientation and rigorous cost discipline.
