TUI fly Germany made this announcement (translated from German):
The decision for long-haul flights at TUI fly in Germany has been made and confirmed by the TUI Group.
With the beginning of the winter timetable 2020/21, TUI fly will start long-distance flights from Germany.
Two Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft will fly to destinations in the Caribbean and Mexico.
“An agreement with the social partners makes the decision for the long haul flights possible. Strategically, the long-haul segment brings several advantages for the TUI Group: The feeder flights for cruises of the “Mein Schiff” fleet of TUI Cruises are operated under their own flag. The TUI Group is strong on long-haul destinations and owns a comprehensive hotel portfolio in the Caribbean. The approach of long-haul destinations, such as the Cape Verde Islands, is also being considered. There, the TUI Group has a strong presence with its own hotel brands such as RIU, Robinson and TUI Blue, “says Oliver Lackmann, Managing Director of TUIfly GmbH.”
