TUI Suisse to boost capacity by 5% in 2015
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.
