Long distance travel: Important boom for emerging and developing countries

Long-distance travel is extremely popular. For example, at TUI in the 2017 summer season it is registering a booking plus of 16 percent. This makes a significant contribution to development policy objectives, as on average 15 German holidaymakers secure one job in emerging and developing countries. One of the countries particularly benefiting from long-distance travel is Mexico. Already today, tourists secure eight million jobs there, with an increasing trend. The TUI Group is also focusing on the land of the Aztecs: by 2020 the number of the group‘s owned hotels will grow to more than 20. That will involve 3,000 new jobs.
