Large tour operators have canceled further trips. A stop was originally only planned until May 3. However, Tui is already commenting on trips in summer.
The tour operators Tui, FTI and Alltours extend the stop for everyone to travel until May 15th. The companies announced on April 24, 2020. The reason is the corona pandemic. So far Tui and FTI only canceled trips until May 3, Alltours until the end of April. “Guests whose holidays can no longer take place will receive all information about the cancellation from us in writing in the coming days,” said FTI boss Dietmar Gunz.
Tui said it was preparing to restart the tourism sector. “It is not yet clear when travel can begin again,” said Hubert Kluske, Managing Director for Sales and Marketing. “However, we already have the certainty today that the Germans want to travel again as soon as possible”.
As soon as individual countries give the green light, Tui is able to offer trips there. “We assume that we will fly guests to various holiday destinations in midsummer.”
Alltours said they hope “that after May 15th, tourism will start with individual arrival in Germany can start again slowly “.
