From the end of March 2022, the TUI group will “open” the tourist season in selected Greek destinations, as the Minister of Tourism Vassilis Kikilias agreed with the member of the Executive Board and Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of TUI Group, Sebastian Ebel and its member Executive Committee and Director of Corporate and External Affairs of the Group, Thomas Ellerbeck.

Messrs. Ebel and Ellerbeck in a meeting today at the Ministry of Tourism with the Greek Minister described Greece as one of the most important destinations of TUI in the world and expressed the belief that in the next tourist season the Group will exceed the milestone of 3 million visitors to Greece, achieved in 2019.

The agenda of the meeting also included issues of cooperation concerning the TUI Academy in Athens, as well as issues of sustainability where the work of the TUI Care Foundation was analyzed in general and in particular the sustainable tourism program of the group in Crete, which connects tourism with rural and fishing activity, offering visitors to the island an authentic experiential tourist experience.

The Minister of Tourism also highlighted the possibilities of promoting Athens as a destination throughout the year and especially during the autumn and winter months, with TUI executives expressing their strong interest in this prospect.

In this context, in the meeting with the president of the Athens-Attica and Argosaronikos Hoteliers Association Lamprini Karanassiou-Zulovic and the general secretary of the Association Eugenios Vasilikos, which took place later today, Mr. Kikilias presented to the hoteliers representatives the proposal of TU to schedule a working meeting between the two bodies in the near future, for the further strengthening of the tourist product of the city.
