TUI Suisse to boost ca­pac­ity by 5% in 2015

Financial Mirror (Cyprus) - - FRONT PAGE -

TUI Suisse, one of the lead­ing tour op­er­a­tors from cen­tral Europe and a mem­ber of the gi­ant TUI group, plans to boost its traf­fic to Greece next year.

Martin Wit­twer, CEO of TUI’s Switzer­land op­er­a­tions, said that Greece is one of the popular des­ti­na­tions for the Swiss and they ex­pect to have in­creased de­mand in the 2015 sum­mer sea­son. For this rea­son they have in­creased their ca­pac­ity by 5%.

Ev­ery year TUI Suisse takes its staff and travel agents to its TUI World Ex­pe­ri­ence Tour. This year the des­ti­na­tion was Crete, Greece, where Wit­twer made his com­ments to staff and lo­cal of­fi­cials.

The ob­jec­tive of the 160 plus par­tic­i­pants was to get a first hand ex­pe­ri­ence of the des­ti­na­tion so that they can trans­fer the feel­ing and what to ex­pect to their clients for the up­com­ing sum­mer sea­son 2015.

The pro­gramme in­cluded sight­see­ing, re­search on the des­ti­na­tion, pre­sen­ta­tions of the lo­cal au­thor­i­ties, in­spec­tion of the Gre­co­tel ho­tels and tast­ing of the lo­cal cui­sine, wine and the lo­cal “Tsik­oudia”.

The pro­gram also had plenty of en­ter­tain­ment with the fi­nal high­light be­ing the gala din­ner with theme “An­cient Greece”, where all par­tic­i­pants were dressed as An­cient Greeks.
